Get curious about investing and #ASKASC


Wondering how to properly research an investment opportunity? Or what the difference is between a TFSA and an RRSP? Chances are, if you have these questions about investing, someone else does too. Here’s another question, have you ever searched a Q&A page on a website and couldn’t find what you were looking for? On, we’re building our Q&A page using real questions from real Albertans with responses from our team of subject matter experts at the ASC.

To encourage all of your questions and help get us started, we’ve developed our #ASKASC campaign and contest, here’s how it works:

From October 3 to 31, post your investing questions to our wall on Facebook or Twitter tag us @ASCUpdates and include the hashtag #ASKASC.

Once your question has been submitted, our team of gurus will start working on the response and you will be automatically entered into a draw to win a smartwatch! We’ll also be sure to notify you once your question has been answered and where you can find it on It’s simple – just #ASKASC all of your investing questions and take this opportunity to increase your investor knowledge and help other Albertans do the same.

Before you post, make sure your question is eligible. We can only help with general questions about investing and we can’t provide investment advice. Below are some examples of eligible questions:

   1. If I invest in a fraudulent company, can I get my money back?

   2. What rights do I have as a shareholder?

   3. What is insider trading?

   4. Where can I find information about a company I want to invest in?

And here are a few examples of questions we can’t answer:

   1. Should I invest in XYZ Company?

   2. Can you tell me if and when XYZ Company is going to launch an IPO?

   3. Can you recommend any good financial advisers in my area?

Thank you for helping us help Albertans increase their investor education. We’re looking forward to answering your questions!
