General information

Canada is one of the leading economies in the world with very active financial markets. Parties wishing to trade with debt securities and also engage in some other transactions in OTC derivatives markets have been obliged to have LEI code since 2016. This has accelerated LEI adoption significantly in the country. Continuous effort in making financial transactions safer and more transparent has led to the proposal of number of acts that support further LEI issuance in Canada. It is also one of the countries with the most LEI codes in the world. There are a number of LOUs with accreditation from GLEIF to issue LEIs in Canada. Below a data about the ten biggest LOUs in the country together with LEI statistics by region is visible.
