Investing in consumer education initiatives and research

FSRA accepting applications for grant funding

The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) is using the money it collects from enforcement actions to help consumers with financial literacy, financial awareness and the understanding of market trends in the province.

The funding must be used for specific purposes, such as research or educational initiatives. It is being distributed through an application-based program and open to proposals from within FSRA and external third-parties, such as not-for-profit organizations.

We encourage anyone with a good idea, whether it’s an education initiative or a research project, to check out our page on grant funding to see if you qualify.

More information on how we use Proceeds from Enforcement can be found in our updated Use of Proceeds from Enforcement Guidance.
