The Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) has sanctioned Christopher Douglas White $25,000, plus costs of $6,250 for misconduct. He has also been banned for a period of 12 months.

The MFDA says that on or around September 20, 2016, White falsified a limited trading authorization form, and submitted the form to an MFDA member in response to a supervisory inquiry. The regulator also found that he falsely represented that he had completed a university degree in his application for employment with an MFDA member.

At the time of the misconduct, White did business in Halifax, Nova Scotia. To learn more, a copy of the Reasons for Decision is available on the MFDA website at
