British Columbia Securities Commission

In addition to regulating securities, the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) undertakes to educate investors to protect them from securities fraud.  CurrentDesign provided digital expertise to BCSC’s advertising agency, enabling campaign delivery and maintenance over several years.

To better reach its target market, BCSC desired a mobile app that the public could use to learn about securities fraud, and especially to assess and report questionable investment opportunities in the moment.

CurrentDesign significantly enhanced the agency’s expertise, including in mobile apps. We worked directly with BCSC, on the agency’s behalf, to specify and deliver a suitable solution, which integrates several data feeds, including the Canadian Securities Administrators’ (CSA) disciplined persons list. The app is available for iOS and Android.

“CurrentDesign collaborated with our advertising agency on the development of the BeFraudAware app. Trevor was an integral part of the team who recommended and implemented technical solutions that allowed us to realize our project goals, budget and timelines. We continue to work with Trevor and his team on maintaining the app to ensure it is up-to-date and available to BC investors.”
