  1. Hey everyone,

    I was curious to find out if anyone here has opened an Investment firm in Canada, or knew someone who has?

    I know you must go through the IDA, but I am having a hard time getting someone to call me back.

    So if you have any knowledge on that subject, please let me know.

    Thanks, take care.

    shouldn't you be hiring one of those smart alecky Canadian lawyers....eh
  3. The IDA is not in the business of giving advice to non-members.

    That said...
    Becoming a member of the IDA is very doable...
    Just meet the requirements and you are in.

    Then welcome to Regulatory Hell...
    Dim-witted, masochistic beaurocrats looking up you a**hole...
    And making you jump through flaming hoops.

    Doing some thorough research on the net...
    Will probably help you a lot more than a securities lawyer...
    Though you will need a good one, plus an auditor, for the long haul.
