Registered crypto asset trading platforms are subject to terms and conditions, which can be viewed in the individual exemptive relief decisions linked in the chart above.

Unregistered platforms operating in Manitoba that are non-compliant may be included on the Investor Alerts Database and subject to regulatory action, including temporary orders.

Registered and unregistered platforms are reminded that Commission staff may review their compliance with securities law requirements, including in relation to advertising and marketing. False or misleading advertising and improper marketing strategies raise concerns about the fitness of a firm and its principals for registration.
