Submit a claim to the
Fonds d'indemnisation des services financiers
The AMF administers the Fonds d’indemnisation des services financiers (“financial services compensation fund”). The fund may compensate victims of fraud, fraudulent tactics (dishonest practices) and embezzlement who conduct business with individuals and companies authorized to operate under An Act respecting the distribution of financial products and services, or in connection with mutual funds or scholarship plans.
The AMF proceeds with the assessment of claims, renders a decision on their eligibility to receive an indemnity through the fund and determines the amount of the indemnity to be paid to the victim.
The maximum compensation payable to consumers is $200,000 per claim through funds accumulated in the fund. The latter is financed through compulsory annual contributions paid by firms and representatives registered with the AMF.
