About the Logo

The CIRO logo is a visual representation of the new, single self-regulatory organization and tells the story of CIRO’s role in regulation and investor protection. The rounded font demonstrates approachability, collaboration and openness. The shield represents a badge of honour; a visual members can be proud to display. The logo conveys a feeling of trust, and the three lines show upward movement to demonstrate progression and signify growth. Additionally, the lines represent CIRO’s three key stakeholders: investors, members and the capital markets.
