Insider Trading Canada – The No. 1 Free Resource for Tracking the Change in Canadian Insider Ownership

When determining whether a particular Canadian listed stock is suitable for my portfolio, I conduct due diligence by researching recent insider trading activity. In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to track changes in Canadian insider ownership by using a 7-step process on (System for Electronic Disclosure by Insiders).

Step 1: Go to and select “English” to enter the website.

Step 2: Select “Access public filings” in the top right corner.

Step 3: Select “View summary reports” from the menu on the left.

Step 4: Select “Insider information by issuer” from the available “Report titles” and click on the “Next” button.

Step 5: Enter your search criteria and click on the “Search” button.

Step 6: Select the required issuer by clicking on the (blue) “View” link.

Step 7: Finally, you can view the “Insider information by Issuer” of the company of your choice.


While SEDI offers other possibilities at different steps in the widget, I mainly use the selections described to gain insight into the insider stock trading of a specific Canadian stock.

Cautionary Note: Although I recognize the importance of insider trading information, I am cautious when drawing conclusions about insider trading that occurs in (late) December due to the January Effect.
