Rules and regulations need to be considered within your brokerage technology strategy. Here are some government resources offering guidance to business owners.

 

Privacy

In Canada, ‘personal information’ is any information associated with an individual, which could be used to identify him or her. Federal privacy legislation is complemented by provincial statutes. The links below offer useful information regarding what personal information can be collected, and how is can be shared, stored, or used.

 

IBAC has also created toolkits specific for brokers’ use, which provincial and regional associations can refer to the relevant local regulators for approval. Check with your association to see if your regulator has approved the tools for use in your province.
