VSTA (Vancouver)

The Vancouver Security Traders Association Inc. (VSTA) is a non-profit organization which, pursuant to the provisions of the Society Act, was incorporated on November 14, 1986 to serve as a voice, and community, for security traders in Vancouver.

The VSTA is presently comprised of approximately 60 equity traders (“members”) and is represented by a four person Board of Directors.

The purpose of the VSTA is to create a common voice that promotes the interest of our members; provides an arena for professional and social interaction; keeps members informed of pending industry rules, regulations and trends; and provides support to the efforts of the Canadian Security Traders Association (CSTA).

We host several social events each year including; Charity Poker Tournament, Spring/Summer Social, Fall Bash and the AGM which is held over lunch just before the December Holidays. In addition the VSTA co-ordinates with its parent organization the CSTA to offer educational opportunities, CE accredited seminars, and participates in discussions with regulators in advancing market structure.

The VSTA is also committed to recruitment and promotion of the industry through various scholarship programs and educational opportunities for institutes in the Vancouver Area.

We encourage your participation in the Association and welcome any suggestions or questions you may have.
