Located centrally in downtown Vancouver, the British Columbia Securities Commission administers the Securities Act. Our mission is to foster fair and efficient capital markets and a competitive securities industry.

Join the dynamic team responsible for developing law, policy and guidance for corporate finance market participants, and analyzing and providing recommendations on applications for exemptions from securities legislation. Working closely with other professionals, you will represent the Commission on national and local committees and will provide advice or information to staff, Commissioners and the public about policy and legal issues.

You are a seasoned securities lawyer with experience in corporate finance including experience with prospectuses, distributions in reliance on prospectus exemptions, continuous disclosure obligations, and shareholder meeting mechanics.
