The OSC Investor Office is continuing to modernize investor education through its new Fact Cards, free digital cards containing unbiased information on investment topics that can be embedded on third-party websites. Fact Cards cover topics ranging from the red flags of investment fraud to understanding mutual funds to checking the registration of a financial advisor. The catalogue of Fact Cards will be continuously updated and expanded.
Fact Cards can be embedded by using a publicly available web code (similar to how YouTube videos can be embedded on websites) and shared through social media links. All Fact Cards are built for use on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, and are available in English and French.
Journalists, media organizations, law enforcement, the financial industry, educational partners and others are encouraged to use Fact Cards in their websites and articles. This has the advantage of providing investors and the public with important factual information from a trusted source while also reducing the need for organizations to produce their own similar content.
