CSI will be performing system maintenance on Saturday April 13th from 5 a.m. until 1 p.m. ET. You will not have access to your “myCSI” student account, nor will you be able to book, cancel or reschedule exams during this time. You can still access your online course materials by visiting connect.csi.ca then connecting to “Blackboard Learn”.

This 3-hour online mini-course will give students a solid understanding of insider trading, how to identify and prevent it.

Upon completion of the course students will be able to:

  • Determine what is legitimate insider trading and what is illegal insider trading
  • Understand Canadian regulations on illegal insider trading
  • Identify the threats insider trading can pose to capital markets
  • Describe the relationship between front-running and insider trading
  • Identify CSA and CIRO insider trading guidelines and apply them to firm policies on insider information
  • Discuss the implications of insider trading rules for each dealer business unit
  • List the CSA, Criminal Code and CIRO penalties for insider trading
  • Describe the critical actions to be taken if exposed to material, non-public information, either intentionally or inadvertently

Firms must rely on the ability of their staff to act in accordance with the regulations involving insider trading. By keeping up-to-date on relevant rules and practices, students gain new knowledge and a level of confidence that reduces the risk for all involved. Insider Trading: Regulations and Prevention will appeal to investment bankers, investment representatives and analysts, professional traders, research analysts, retail advisors, portfolio and investment managers, and discount brokers.
