Investor Insurance – CIPF Coverage

Integral is a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF), which provides clients with up to $1 million in loss protection for each of the following accounts:

  • General account
  • Registered account
  • Spousal account
  • Corporate account
  • Certain types of trust accounts

For example, if you hold three qualified accounts you will be eligible for loss coverage of $1 million per account, for a total of $3 million.

CIPF does not protect you from any decline in value of your accounts that results from a drop in the price of securities you own. CIPF coverage applies in the circumstance where you experience a shortfall in the value of your account(s) as a result of your investment dealer becoming bankrupt. Learn more at www.cipf.ca.
