Although a comparative approach is used, the primary focus of this article is how recent legislative changes and market events have influenced the Canadian securities landscape. In doing so, this Article contributes to the ongoing debate on public and private enforcement by evaluating securities enforcement from a systemic perspective, focusing on the relationship between public and private enforcement and synergies that exist in the Canadian environment. This analysis of recent trends and literature on securities enforcement in Canada highlights the interrelationship between public and private enforcement in Canada and supports the conclusion that any legislative changes must consider the securities regulatory framework as a whole as opposed to affecting changes on a piecemeal basis.
