Can Canadian citizens do business with a US Forex broker? For a US Forex broker to be able to conduct business with a Canadian citizen there must be two criteria which are met. First the broker must have a physical presence in Canada and second it has to be registered as a broker with securities in Canada. What are the payment options that Canadian Forex brokers offer to customers?

Can I be led into a fraudulent transaction with a regulated Canadian broker? Canadian Forex brokers are so heavily regulated that it is nearly impossible to be involved in any sort of fraud or scam. If there is a situation in which a regulated Canadian Forex broker leads you into a scam through misinformation or some other means of misleading the trader then that broker will be heavily penalized, stripped off his license and put on the wall of shame.

This might not seem as a consolation for the misled party, but penalizing actions such as these are designed to prevent Forex brokers from going into a fraudulent deal in the first place. How can I avoid getting involved in a broker scam? If you always check that the Forex broker that you deal with is registered with the CSA, complies with the IIROC regulations and is also adhering to specific provincial or regional laws then you cannot and will not be involved in a scam.

However, there is always a chance that you are the victim of some of the misleading techniques and methods which fraudsters use and which we will discuss further down in this article. If this happens you are most likely not dealing with a regulated Forex broker and you even might not be dealing with a Forex broker at all.

Do all the Canadian provinces comply with the same Forex operating laws? Different provinces may have to comply with additional rules and requirements unless an exemption is granted. British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec are some of these provinces.
