Investing is an important part of planning for long-term life goals like retirement.

We want Albertans to be empowered to make informed and suitable investment decisions, so we created, an investor-oriented website designed to increase their financial literacy.

And there are some important steps to take before investing, not only to ensure an investment is right for you - but also to ensure you spot and avoid investment fraud.

Brush up on your financial knowledge provides a wide variety of unbiased, informative educational resources to help you increase your financial literacy:

Protect yourself from Investment Scams

Checkfirst has a comprehensive Investor Protection section with information to help Albertans learn ways to recognize and avoid investment fraud, protecting themselves and their hard-earned money.

If you're thinking of making an investment, ensure you know the red flags of investment fraud and check the registration of the person/company offering you the investment.
