Program Description

If topics such as law, politics, international relations and global finance interest you, and you're looking for a challenging and rewarding career with one of Canada's financial services institutions or with a government regulatory agency, consider the graduate certificate program in Financial Services Compliance Administration.

Compliance administration is a fast growing field in the financial services industry. Monitoring the activities of securities and mutual fund dealers to ensure that they are working in the best interests of their clients is now recognized as a core requirement for all financial institutions.

The development and administration of risk management programs that ensure financial institutions are in compliance with government anti-money laundering and terrorist-financing regulatory programs is becoming increasingly important in the emerging marketplace of global financial transactions. Compliance is the critical first step in fraud prevention.

In this program, you will take courses that will enable you to qualify for the Canadian Securities Course (CSC) licensing examinations. As a student, you will register with the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) at an additional cost.

Field Placement/Industry Project

The Financial Services Compliance Administration program does more than just equip graduates with the tools of the trade. It provides you with the opportunity to gain important Canadian job experience. You are required to complete a compliance administration field placement or industry project as part of the program requirements. A field placement co-ordinator will work with you to match you with placement and/or project opportunities within a variety of institutions. Upon completion of the program, you will have begun the important first step in the networking process that is critical to finding the position to launch a career as a financial services compliance administrator.
