  • Canadian securities regulators seek comment on climate-related disclosure requirements
    by FCNB on 18 October 2021 at 14:28

    Calgary and Toronto – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today published for comment proposed climate-related disclosure requirements. The proposed requirements demonstrate the CSA’s commitment in favour of the growing international movement toward mandatory climate-related disclosure standards. They also address the need for more consistent and comparable information to help inform investment decisions. The requirements contemplate disclosure largely consistent with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations. They will improve the comparability of the information issuers disclose and help investors make more informed investment decisions by enhancing climate-related disclosure. The requirements are also intended to address costs associated with reporting across multiple disclosure frameworks, improve access to global markets and facilitate an equal playing field for issuers. “We recognize some issuers already share certain climate-related information,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. “Our proposed requirements will bring those disclosures into a harmonized framework benefitting investors and issuers alike and aligning Canadian capital markets with the global movement towards mandatory standards.” The proposed requirements contemplate disclosure by issuers related to the four core elements of the TCFD recommendations: Governance – an issuer’s board’s oversight of and management’s role in assessing and managing climate-related risks and opportunities. Strategy – the short-, medium- and long-term climate-related risks and opportunities the issuer has identified and the impact on its business, strategy and financial planning, where such information is material. As a modification from the TCFD recommendations, the proposed disclosure would not include the requirement to disclose “scenario analysis”, which is an issuer’s description of the resilience of its strategy within different climate-related scenarios, including a 2°C or lower scenario. Risk management – how an issuer identifies, assesses and manages climate-related risks and how these processes are integrated into its overall risk management. Metrics and targets – the metrics and targets used by an issuer to assess and manage climate-related risks and opportunities where the information is material. Issuers would be required to disclose their Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the related risks, or their reasons for not doing so. The CSA is also consulting on an alternative approach that would require issuers to disclose Scope 1 GHG emissions. Under this alternative, disclosure of Scope 2 and Scope 3 GHG emissions would not be mandatory.      “With global momentum building on sustainability-related disclosures in both the public and private sectors, these proposals reflect our vision and expectations for reporting issuers as we move towards a global baseline for such disclosures,” said Morisset. The disclosure requirements would be phased in over a one-year period for non-venture issuers and over a three-year period for venture issuers. This is intended to give companies sufficient time to plan for implementation. The proposed disclosure requirements follow environmental and climate-related reporting guidance issued by the CSA in 2010 and 2019. The requirements also draw on extensive CSA engagement with stakeholders and address recommendations made by Ontario’s Capital Markets Modernization Taskforce on climate-related disclosures that were subsequently noted in the 2021 Ontario Budget.  More details about the consultation, including a list of specific questions for stakeholders, can be found in CSA Notice and Request for Comment Proposed National Instrument 51-107 Disclosure of Climate-related Matters on the websites of CSA members. Comments should be submitted in writing by January 17, 2022. The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories, co-ordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.

  • Canadian securities regulators strongly support the establishment of the International Sustainability Standards Board in Canada
    by FCNB on 7 October 2021 at 14:51

    Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) strongly supports the establishment of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the Canadian offer to host the ISSB headquarters in Canada. “Establishing international standards is an important step in enhancing industry reporting and disclosure that yields reliable, complete, and comparable information for investors,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. “As a global ambassador that prioritizes strong governance, stewardship and leadership, the CSA is supportive of advancing the ISSB, and believes Canada is uniquely positioned to be its home.” Canada has one of the most diversified economies in the world, with industries offering expertise, experience, history and leadership in standard-setting, governance, sustainability reporting and climate-related financial disclosures. Our issuers and large asset managers are committed to the development of comparable, high-quality environmental, social and governance standards and reducing carbon emissions, domestically and globally. Canada is also recognized for fostering consensus, collaborative leadership and innovation on environmental issues. This includes the Canada-United Kingdom Partnership on Clean Growth and Climate Change, the Canada-EU High-Level Dialogue on Environment in 1983, and the High-Level Dialogue on Climate Change in 2010.  The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories, coordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital marketsFor media inquiries: Pascale Bijoux  Canadian Securities Administratorsmedia@acvm-csa.ca For Investor inquiries, please refer to your local securities regulator.

  • Canadian securities regulators implement eight initiatives to reduce regulatory burden for investment funds
    by FCNB on 7 October 2021 at 13:58

    Montreal and Toronto - The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today published amendments that implement eight initiatives to reduce regulatory burden for investment funds. The changes eliminate duplicative requirements, streamline regulatory approvals and processes, and codify frequently granted exemptions from certain requirements.  “These initiatives are wide-ranging and will result in cost and time savings to investment funds and their managers, while maintaining investor protection and market efficiency,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. Highlights include: Investment funds in continuous distribution will only need to file a single streamlined document annually instead of the simplified prospectus and annual information form.  Investment funds will be required to identify a website where their regulatory disclosures will be posted. This will formalize an existing industry practice, improve investor access to disclosure and potentially create opportunities for additional burden reduction initiatives. Investment funds will not be required to file personal information forms with securities regulators as frequently.   Investment funds will no longer be required to apply to securities regulators for exemptive relief to use the notice-and-access system; from certain conflict of interest rules; and from the requirement to deliver fund facts documents and ETF facts documents for model portfolio products, portfolio rebalancing services and automatic switch programs.    In addition, investment funds will no longer be required to seek regulatory approval for a change of manager or change of control of manager, and will experience fewer instances where regulatory approval to engage in a merger is required. To read more about the full scope of the amendments, please refer to CSA Notice of Amendments Reducing Regulatory Burden for Investment Fund Issuers – Phase 2, Stage 1. These amendments complete the first stage of the CSA’s initiative to reduce the regulatory burden on investment fund issuers. Subsequent stages will include further examination of the prospectus filing regime; modernizing the continuous disclosure regime; and exploring alternatives to the current requirements for delivering various investment fund related materials.   Subject to Ministerial Approval where required, most of the amendments will come into force on January 5, 2022, and the remainder on January 6, 2022. There are exemptions available from some of the requirements to give issuers more time to comply.  The amendments, related companion policy changes, and accompanying notice can be found on CSA members’ websites.  The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories, co-ordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.   For media inquiries, please contact:    Pascale Bijoux Canadian Securities Administratorsmedia@acvm-csa.ca Sylvain Théberge Autorité des marchés financierssylvain.theberge@lautorite.qc.ca Crystal Jongeward Ontario Securities Commissionmedia_inquiries@osc.gov.on.ca   For investor inquiries, please contact your local securities regulator.
