Forex Trading in Alberta, Canada

I've been practicing on a demo account for quite a while now and was ready to bite the bullet and open a real account and start trading. To my surprise Alberta regulations with the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) only allow accredited investors to trade with brokers regulated in Canada. And to become an accredited investor one would need an income of over 200k a year, or assets exceeding $5 million. As this is far out of reach for the majority of individuals including myself, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how I could start trading without having to move provinces. Thank you.

Craziest true story you've ever read, can almost guarantee.

I want to start this off by stating that this is really personal & my mind jumps all over the place when I talk about the whole situation, so pardon me if I ramble or forget some details. Please also try to understand the circumstances.

My father used to work in the Alberta oil fields, in 2015 he got engaged & started working in our province so he could be home every night. Shortly after his return, an old friend of ours stopped by and they were catching up on old times when he told my dad that he was trading on the Forex market. This friend (let's call him Matt) bet my dad that if he gave him $500 he would be able to double it in a month, skeptical but with nothing to lose my dad agreed and sure enough later Matt came back with a cheque for around $1,000. We were all shocked & surprised and so they set up a deal where my dad would give him however much money and Matt would take a percentage of it as compensation which was perfectly fine. A year goes by and both Matt & my dad have earned a lot more money, my father was moving more from the "investments" than he was making at his job, around that same time my dad started having relationship issues & temporarily moved into a house with Matt & I would go over on weekends and watch Matt trade, it was fascinating and I wanted to learn how to do it. Not long after moving in, Matt tells my dad that he's officially opening his own investment firm, got all the proper licenses, and was going to start trading for other people & asked my dad if he would be interested in a "sales" position in which he would pitch the whole idea to potential clients, now aside of all of this my dad was working a very labor intensive job which was killing his back, he was making more from his investments than work, and the position he was offered paid $50,000 per month so he agreed.

So it started off slowly with close friends and family, the minimum investment was $500 for 3 months & there were 2 different plans you could choose from no matter how much you chose to invest, you could opt for a plan that would pay you back your initial investment if it was lost but the company would take a larger percentage of the earnings, or you could use plan 2 which was more aggressively traded & earned more money however if the money was lost then you would not receive anything in return. I had invested $500 of my own money for 3 months and ended up with $1200, there were some people who were cashing out $100,000 cheques and word got around and there was a huge surge of people investing their money. Everything was smooth sailing, everyone was getting paid and personally our family was doing extremely good. My dad was now making $600,000/yr plus his investments which added another $180,000. Matt hired around 5 more people to do sales with my dad, 3 people for reception, and even hired some people from Wall Street to help with the trading.

The hardest part to convey about this whole situation is that everyone thought it was legitimate, and when I say EVERYONE was convinced I mean EVERYONE. Police officers, fraud investigators, everyone believed it was real & invested. Back to the main story, it is now 2017 and we have a nice house, a Lamborghini, a Mercedes S550, an Audi R8, and a Porsche Cayenne. Life was going good but with the stress of how massive the company was getting in such short of time my dad planned for a nice March break vacation in Mexico. So March break comes around and we leave for Mexico, 2 days after being there my dad gets a phone call from Matt saying "The police just raided the office, I don't know what's going on but it'll be fine. I'm heading down to the police station to figure it out." Instantly we were all panicked, sitting & waiting for a call back. Several minutes afterwards my dad gets another phone call from a detective who we'll call "David." David tells my dad that Matt has been taken into custody and that they had been investigating Matt's company for several months on the suspicion of fraud, and that he will be arrested when he returned to Canada as well. Obviously shocked & confused my dad continues talking to David and they agree on a plan for my dad to turn himself in once we got back instead of the humiliation at the airport & in front of his family. We tried to enjoy our vacation & then our last day came and we were heading back to a world of chaos. The flight home was mostly silent and I could tell that my dad was scared, angry, confused. We land and slowly walk to the front of the airport, we stood at the front for about an hour just hugging each other, but we knew eventually we would have to leave.

We knew we had to say our final goodbyes & walked away in opposite directions. That would be the last time I saw my father for the next 3 months. My dad turned himself in the next day and then began the fight for his innocence. They seized his bank accounts, took his cars & house away, anything they could take they did. They wanted to charge my dad with fraud & several counts of proceeds of crime over $5,000.

*Now I just want to take a pause to state that my memory of these events are less clear (despite being more recent) because I was dealing with my own personal issues & harassment from people thanks to these events\*

My dad had no money for a lawyer because his accounts were seized, but he managed to get a deal where he would pay them after the trial. Meanwhile for whatever reason Matt still had the office building despite & he was allowed to sell it and use the money to pay for his lawyer, which I think is fucking ridiculous. Matt acted like nothing was wrong, completely emotionless & without a single care of the situation that they were now in. We would visit my dad every Thursday and Matt always had the exact same visiting time so we'd always have to see him, I hated him, I do hate him. My dad was only supposed to be in jail for 2 weeks but they held him for 3 months. They let Matt out before my dad, and Matt was the one who was behind all of it.

I was never involved with the court stuff, so I can't talk about that. Most of the time was spent dealing with threatening messages from people all over our city & province. My sister was even harassed at school by a TEACHER. My whole entire life I was able to deal with really hard situations but this whole thing broke me, I'm not the same & I'll never be the same again. I failed almost all my classes in school, my attendance was next to none, and nobody understood what was going on or what it was like. My whole life was destroyed. After 3 months it is now June 2017 my dad was finally released from jail & the only charge he got was one count of proceeds of crime over $5,000. It was amazing to finally have him back and it lifted a big weight off my chest, but now he had to deal with thousands of angry people who knew who he was & for the wrong reasons, and he had ZERO money because they took away everything. Zero money, $100,000 worth of lawyers fees, and no job... Who is going to hire someone with thousands of people who hate him?

Luckily my step mom was able to help out and keep everything afloat while he found a new job & slowly we tried to get everything set back into order, but then another issue arose thanks to Matt. Matt decided to take money from people in the mafia & invest it for them, and when things went down they came to our doorstep. So they demanded to be paid at least half back by my dad by a certain date or else there would be consequences (which I'm sure you can put 2 & 2 together) because they couldn't find Matt. Eventually my dad found a job, gave the mob what they wanted so they'd leave us alone, and was able to start paying off his lawyers fees & start saving.

So now we're in 2018-2019, people slowly realized that my dad was innocent & stopped hating him, but a lot of friendships were still permanently lost. The good thing was that people started turning their attention to Matt who is still going on about how everyone was going to get paid back, which neither I or anybody else believes. I briefly got to read the report on the whole investigation and they had seized about $20,000,000 in cash/cheques from Matt's office. The police said that they were going to use all the money/assets seized to pay everyone back their initial investment. They also said that they were going to use all the stuff they took from my dad to help pay back everyone, but it's been 2 years and nobody has been paid back & the police have just tried to push everything under the rug.

My dad was completely fine with giving all the money he earned from working at the company back, they have all the bank records & can trace back to when the payments first began but they insisted on taking everything including his life savings from before he even started working for Matt & they took mine & my sister's college savings.

Our lives are relatively normal now, although it'll never be the same. My dad has a good job and is just trying to put everything behind him. I've graduated from high school but since they took our college savings away I can't afford to go, but I'm working myself to save money. Matt was supposed to be convicted about a month ago & it was suspected he would go to jail for 15-20 years however his lawyer became a judge so they pushed back his sentencing another few months (of course), so he's still roaming free.

I believe Matt is a sociopath, absolutely no regret or remorse for anything he's done. Matt also doesn't realize that there are people who want him dead & have put prices on his head both in the free world & in every prison. If I'm being honest, Matt will probably die but after everything we've been through I can say that I don't care what happens to him. It doesn't involve me or my dad or my family, it's his own issues that he caused.

I know I may have jumped all over the place trying to explain this, I probably forgot a lot of details. I just want to move on from this whole situation and I feel like writing it all out best as I can might help. Whenever I think about it I realize that it truly is unbelievable and sounds like something out of a Hollywood movie, but it's my life & it's what I'm dealing with to this day. We thought Matt was our best friend, he was like an older brother to me & he literally ruined our lives, guess you never know who you can trust, right?

P.S not looking for anyone's input on the situation so don't waste your time.

Trading Forex in Alberta

Due to Alberta SEC rules, Canadian brokers do not allow Alberta residents to trade Forex without being an "accredited investor". I do not qualify.
1) Does the law prohibit Canadian brokers from providing service to me OR does it prohibit me from trading? In other words, if I use an offshore broker, am I breaking any Canadian law?
2) If is illegal and I do it anyway, what power does the SEC have over me, an individual trading my own funds for personal/entertainment purposes?
3) My profits, if any, would not qualify as capital gains. Do I report this as business income, just as if I'd done any contract job for a Canadian? Does it matter for tax purposes that the money came from outside Canada?
I'm aware of the inherent risks of having assets at an offshore financial institution.
Thanks to anyone who would care to respond.

Taking excess student loans

I'm an engineering student in Alberta enrolled in a coop program with 3 years left. Currently I am about $16k in student debt (70% Alberta, 30% Canada) with about $8k sitting in 0.8% Interest savings account which I can pay back whenever I need to as I have no expenses besides food and clothing.
As you can tell I have much more loans taken out than I need to, this plus scholarships and grants I've been able to qualify for add up to alot of interest free money which I don't necessarily need.
Adding on, I've got a position for my upcoming work term for 8 months which should earn me $30k gross (I have a total of 20 months of work experience in my degree) which in total can more than pay for my entire education
I've been looking a lot into investing specifically into ETFs and indices with all this extra loan money which I don't need, and paying it off by graduation or holding on to it depending on how the interest rates are and my ROI.
Interest rates for Alberta loans are prime, while Canada is prime + 2.5% if I were to choose the variable rate
I am not going into this blindly, I've finished reading the Wealthy Barber Returns as well as Wealthing like Rabbits, I am about to take up The Intelligent Investor aswell. I have been keeping up with financials for over a year now actively checking markets learning how everything works and getting familiar with all the terms (Thank you Investopedia) Previously I traded forex markets (small amounts <$1k) for fun and also for the occasional profit, I stopped trading forex because it felt more of a gamble than investing.
Now with all this background information covered, my question is: Is it a good idea to continue to take out as much student loans as I qualify for and putting them in a TFSA with a modest portfolio compromised of a diverse assortment of Vanguard ETFs? I would start off with about $4k and contribute regularly during my work terms.

Offshore Trading?

Hey fellow forex traders! I live in Alberta (canada) and I use to trade currency when I was a late teen in college and made some pretty good gains Im grown up (kinda) and established, and have been interested in getting back into trading all to find out that in 2013, a new law states in order to trade forex in Alberta you have to be a Accredited Investor.
Accredited Investor, an individual who, either alone or with a spouse, beneficially owns financial assets (cash, securities, contracts of insurance, deposits and evidences of deposits that are not securities for the purpose of securities legislation), having an aggregate realizable value that before taxes, but net of any related liabilities, exceeds $1,000,000, an individual whose net income before taxes exceeded $200,000 in each of the two most recent calendar years or whose net income before taxes combined with that of a spouse exceeded $300,000 in each of the two most recent calendar years and who, in either case, reasonably expects to exceed that net income level in the current calendar year, an individual who, either alone or with a spouse, has net assets of at least $5,000,000, a person, other than an individual or investment fund, that has net assets of at least $5,000,000, as shown on its most recently prepared financial statements, and that was not formed for the sole purpose of making a representation to this effect in order to qualify as an accredited investor.
As stupid as this new law is, falsifying information and lying about my Accredited Investor status is a criminal offence. What is to stop me, or anyone else from opening an forex account with a offshore broker, and offshore bank? to which there are no such laws.
What are your thoughts?
