There are two types of orders: (1) Ban Securities Trading OF cease trade orders which prohibits trading in the securities of a company and (2) Ban Securities Trading BY cease trade orders that prevent specific individuals and companies from trading in securities.

Ban Securities Trading OF cease trade orders (CTOs) are issued by the regulatory authorities of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec. In some cases, BC residents may sell cease-traded shares into foreign markets. See BCI 57-501.

Cease trade orders that prevent specific individuals and companies (“Ban Securities Trading BY CTOs”) from trading in securities are issued by the securities regulatory authorities of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec. The term "General" in the Name column means trading is restricted in all securities. An exception status of "Yes" indicates that there are terms to the CTO that may permit trading in certain circumstances. You should review the specific terms of the order before refusing to execute a trade.

By default all searches will show all cease trade orders issued that remain outstanding (active). To view cease trade orders that have been revoked or have expired, use Advanced Search. You can also browse by company name

Certain orders made in other provinces or territories will automatically take effect in Alberta and Nova Scotia. These provinces will not issue separate orders in these circumstances. For more information click here.
