TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2023 /CNW/ - The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) has initiated enforcement action against Preeti Amin (Amin), Raaj Vikash (Roger) Kalwaney (Kalwaney), and Canada Mortgage Group Inc. also operating as Dominion Lending Centres Canada Mortgage Group (Canada Mortgage Group).

FSRA further alleges that Amin, on several occasions, contravened Section 3 of Ontario Regulation 187/08 by causing Canada Mortgage Group to contravene the above listed provisions of Ontario Regulation 188/08.

FSRA alleges that Kalwaney, the principal broker of Canada Mortgage Group, failed to take reasonable steps to ensure that the Canada Mortgage Group and Amin complied with the requirements under the Act, contrary to subsection 2(1) of Ontario Regulation 410/07.

FSRA is proposing to impose administrative penalties against Amin in the amount of $45,000, against Kalwaney in the amount of $10,000 and against Canada Mortgage Group in the amount of $45,000.
