Abstract
The article offers information on a final report on Canadian securities laws released by the Task Force to Modernize Securities Legislation in October 2006. One study found that the cost of equity capital is 25 basis points higher in Canada than in the U.S. It cites the potential for strong enforcement of securities laws to enhance the credibility of the capital markets. The recommendations of the task force on the investigation and adjudication of capital market offenses are enumerated.
