("1415409"), and Title One Closing Inc. ("TOC") (collectively, the "Settling Respondents").

Staff of the Commission ("Staff") agree to recommend settlement of the proceeding commenced by Notice of Hearing dated March 17, 2015, (the "Proceeding") against the Settling Respondents according to the terms and conditions set out in Part V of this Settlement Agreement (the "Settlement Agreement"). The Settling Respondents agree to the making of an order in the form attached as Schedule "A", based on the facts set out below.

3. For the purposes of this proceeding, and any other regulatory proceeding commenced by a securities regulatory authority, the Settling Respondents agree with the facts as set out in Part III and the conclusion in Part IV of this Settlement Agreement.

PART III -- AGREED FACTS

A. OVERVIEW

4. During the period of about January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2012 (the "Material Time"), the Settling Respondents engaged in unregistered trading and illegal distribution through the sale of securities to approximately 34 Ontario investors, from whom the Settling Respondents raised approximately $5.4 million in investor funds.

5. Furthermore, Chandramattie and Ravindra engaged in fraudulent conduct by making misleading or untrue statements to investors regarding the use of investor funds, and used investor funds for other business purposes, and for personal benefit.

6. The Settling Respondents have acted in a manner contrary to Ontario securities law and contrary to the public interest.

B. BACKGROUND

7. 1415409 was incorporated as an Ontario corporation in April of 2000 (its corporate registration was cancelled on December 8, 2012). Its registered office address was in Mississauga, Ontario. 1415409 has never been registered with the Commission in any capacity.

8. TOC was incorporated as an Ontario corporation in December of 2001. Its registered office address is in Mississauga, Ontario. TOC has never been registered with the Commission in any capacity.

9. 1415409 and TOC are not reporting issuers in Ontario. Neither company has ever filed a prospectus or preliminary prospectus with the Commission.

10. Ravindra is a resident of Mississauga, Ontario. He was one of the founding directors of TOC, and is one of the directing minds of TOC. He has never been registered with the Commission in any capacity.

11. Chandramattie is a resident of Mississauga, Ontario, and is the former spouse of Ravindra. She was the President, the Secretary, and a Director of 1415409.

12. Chandramattie was previously registered with the Commission as a salesperson in the category of "mutual fund dealer" and "limited market dealer" from February 21, 2000, to January 30, 2006. She has not been registered with the Commission in any capacity since that time.

13. During the Material Time, Ravindra and Chandramattie presented predominantly paid seminars to the public in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia that purported to provide education and information regarding real estate related investments, including but not limited to loans, mortgages, and real estate projects or development.

14. At many of these seminars, Ravindra and Chandramattie promoted membership in their organization Canada Real Estate Investment Group ("CANREIG"). Individuals who purchased membership in CANREIG received access to these seminars.

15. In addition to providing seminars and promoting CANREIG, Ravindra and Chandramattie facilitated the investment of funds from the public with corporations owned or controlled by them.

C. VIOLATIONS OF THE ACT

16. During the Material Time, Ravindra and Chandramattie sold promissory notes totalling approximately $5.4 million to at least 34 Ontario investors (the "Promissory Notes"). Investors understood that their funds were being loaned to other individuals or companies through CANREIG or related companies, and that investors would receive a fixed return of 10% to 20% per year.

17. The majority of the Promissory Notes were issued by 1415409 and/or Chandramattie.

18. Each Promissory Note evidenced indebtedness and/or was an "investment contract" and therefore a "security" as defined in subsection 1(1) of the Act.

19. Ravindra and Chandramattie facilitated Ontario residents entering into the Promissory Notes by meeting with potential investors and making representations regarding the purported rate of return they would earn by entering into the investment.

20. Funds from investors were transferred or deposited into a bank account in the name of TOC.

21. As noted above, none of the Settling Respondents were registered with the Commission during the Material Time. No exemptions from registration were available to them under the Act.

22. The sales of the Promissory Notes were trades in securities not previously issued and were therefore distributions. The Settling Respondents had never filed a preliminary prospectus or a prospectus with the Commission, and no prospectus receipt has ever been issued to qualify the sale of the Promissory Notes.

23. Many of the investors did not qualify as accredited investors or meet applicable exemptions from prospectus requirements.

24. By engaging in the conduct described above, the Settling Respondents traded and engaged in, or held themselves out as engaging in, the business of trading in securities and participated in acts, solicitations, conduct, or negotiations directly or indirectly in furtherance of the sale or disposition of securities for valuable consideration, in circumstances where there were no exemptions available to the Settling Respondents under the Act, contrary to sections 25 and 53 of the Act.

25. Chandramattie and Ravindra represented to investors that their funds would be loaned to other individuals or companies, and that investors would receive a fixed return based on the profits generated from these loans. These statements were untrue or misleading and perpetrated a fraud on investors.

26. As noted above, during the Material Time the Settling Respondents received approximately $5.4 million from at least 34 Ontario investors. These investors received Promissory Notes in return. Approximately $2.1 million was paid back to these investors to partially satisfy investment return and redemption payments.

27. Also during the Material Time, the Settling Respondents received an additional approximately $3.1 million from approximately 34 other individuals and companies, who did not receive Promissory Notes. These funds were used to invest in specific real estate projects to which investors received title. In cases where the transaction was not completed, investors received a return of their investment (a total of approximately $875,000).

28. All of the funds received by the Settling Respondents for the above-noted activities were deposited into a single bank account held in the name of TOC.

29. Certain of the funds deposited to the TOC bank account from the issuance of Promissory Notes were used to satisfy investment returns and redemption payments in respect of Promissory Notes issued to other investors.

30. Approximately $2 million of investor funds were used as follows:

(i) approximately $1 million was used in the operations of companies owned or controlled by Ravindra and/or Chandramattie or related parties;

(ii) approximately $750,000 was paid to family members or related parties of Ravindra and/or Chandramattie, a portion of which was in relation to the return of funds previously invested with the Settling Respondents;

(iii) approximately $150,000 was paid to personal credit cards in the names of Ravindra and related parties, some of which was in respect of business expenses;

(iv) approximately $90,000 was used to make payments to mortgages on properties owned by parties related to the Settling Respondents, a portion of which was in relation to the return of funds previously invested with the Settling Respondents; and

(v) approximately $15,000 was used for medical expenditures for the personal benefit of Ravindra.

31. Approximately $2.0 million was paid to other individuals, some of which was in respect of fees for services, and some of which was repayment of loans made to the Settling Respondents prior to the Material Period.

32. Approximately $1.5 million was paid to other corporations, some of which was in respect of fees for services, and some of which was transfers to associated companies conducting business in other provinces.

33. By engaging in the conduct described above, Chandramattie and Ravindra engaged in or participated in acts, practices, or courses of conduct relating to securities that they knew or reasonably ought to have known perpetrated a fraud on persons or companies contrary to paragraph 126.1(b) of the Act.

34. During the Material Time Chandramattie, as a Director and Officer of 1415409, authorized, permitted, or acquiesced in 1415409's non-compliance with Ontario securities law.

E. MITIGATING FACTORS

35. None of the Settling Respondents have previously been found to have breached the Act.

36. Ravindra has never been registered with the Commission in any capacity.

37. Other than their use of investor funds for personal use, as detailed above, the Settling Respondents did not receive a salary from investor funds.

38. The Settling Respondents invested significant personal funds in the operation of their various businesses. They are now impecunious.

39. The Settling Respondents cooperated during Staff's investigation, and have voluntarily agreed to enter into this Settlement Agreement.

PART IV -- CONDUCT CONTRARY TO ONTARIO SECURITIES LAW AND THE PUBLIC INTEREST

40. By engaging in the conduct described above, the Settling Respondents admit and acknowledge that they have breached Ontario securities law by contravening sections 25(1)(a), 53(1), and 126.1(b) of the Act and acknowledge that they have acted contrary to the public interest, and Chandramattie additionally admits and acknowledges that she breached Ontario securities law by contravening section 129.2 of the Act, in that:

(a) They engaged in or held themselves out as engaging in the business of trading in securities without being registered to do so in circumstances where there were no exemptions available to them under the Act, contrary to paragraph 25(1)(a) of the Act as that section existed at the time the conduct at issue commenced on January 1, 2009, and contrary to section 25(1) of the Act as subsequently amended on September 28, 2009;

(b) They traded securities when a preliminary prospectus and a prospectus had not been filed and receipts had not been issued for them by the Director, contrary to subsection 53(1) of the Act;

(d) Chandramattie, being an officer and director of 1415409, authorized, permitted or acquiesced in 1415409's non-compliance with Ontario securities law and accordingly failed to comply with Ontario securities law, contrary to section 129.2 of the Act; and

(e) The Settling Respondents' conduct was contrary to the public interest and harmful to the integrity of the capital markets in Ontario.
