An exciting opportunity to apply your exceptional analytical and problem solving skills

The Financial Institutions Commission (“FICOM”) regulates pension, financial services and mortgage broker industries in British Columbia. This regulation is designed to protect the public against the insolvency of financial institutions, prevent improper market conduct in the financial services and mortgage broker sectors, provide deposit insurance for members of B.C. credit unions and ensure the solvency of pension funds.

The Investigator deploys investigative best practices in the handling of urgent, complex, and high- risk cases relating to misconduct of financial institutions (i.e., insurance, trust, and credit union) regulated by the Government of British Columbia. The Investigator exercises considerable initiative and flexibility when responding to the changing circumstances of complex investigations.
Management, executive, and legal counsel rely on the Investigator’s acumen, judgement, and tenacity to make compelling cases for regulatory action which is subject to public scrutiny. In making file management decisions, the Investigator draws on their knowledge of the legislation, evidentiary standards and requirements, industry knowledge, and prioritizes files according to risk of harm to the public.

Qualifications for this role include:

  • Organizational and/or academic coursework in administrative law and advanced investigative techniques, preferably leading to a certification, or an equivalent combination of training and experience.
  • Post-secondary degree in business, insurance, law, or criminology (preferred).
  • Five (5) years of recent and progressive investigative experience, preferably in a regulatory, corporate security, law enforcement, or related environment.
  • An equivalent combination of education, training, and experience may be considered.
  • Preference may be given to candidates with investigative experience in the areas of insurance and/or financial services.
  • Preference may be given to those with or who immediately qualify for Special Provincial Constable status.
