With respect to enforcement, the OSC indicated that it would continue to pursue more fraud cases before the courts where a jail sentence is available. In addition, the OSC reaffirmed its commitment and pledged to focus its resources on the Joint Serious Offences Team (“JSOT”), which was formed in conjunction with various law enforcement  agencies.

With respect to compliance, the report also suggests that the OSC would select registrants for compliance reviews that are likely to have compliance issues, are new registrants or are in a specific topic or industry that is of particular concern.
