A former contractor for the Nunavut government gained unauthorized access to CSA’s national registration database, the group of regulators said Friday in a release.

The database is the web-based system that registrants use to file registration information with Canadian securities regulators.

The former contractor was previously authorized to access the database while under contract, CSA said. The individual accessed personal information for a single registrant and business information for select registrants from a single registered firm, and then proactively disclosed the unauthorized access to CSA. CSA has terminated the person’s access, it said.

“The CSA has notified the single registrant whose personal information was accessed, and has contacted the registered firm,” the release said.
