  • Canadian securities regulators introduce exemptions for qualified issuers from certain base shelf prospectus requirements
    by FCNB on 6 December 2021 at 15:34

    Toronto – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today published temporary exemptions from certain base shelf prospectus requirements for qualifying well-known seasoned issuers (WKSIs). The exemptions allow an issuer, that meets WKSI qualifications and certain conditions, to file a final base shelf prospectus with its principal regulator and obtain a receipt for that prospectus on an accelerated basis without first filing a preliminary base shelf prospectus. “These exemptions will reduce regulatory burden on large, well-known reporting issuers who meet specific criteria and conditions, making it more efficient for these issuers to raise capital in our capital markets, without compromising investor protection,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers.  The CSA received feedback, as part of the reducing regulatory burden for non-investment fund reporting issuers consultation, that certain prospectus requirements in the base shelf context create unnecessary regulatory burden for established reporting issuers that have strong market following and up-to-date disclosure records. It was recommended that the CSA enhance the current prospectus system by amending the base shelf prospectus regime to implement a Canadian WKSI regime.    This pilot project will assist the CSA in evaluating the appropriateness of the eligibility criteria and conditions, and identifying any potential public interest concerns that should be addressed in any future rule amendments to implement a Canadian WKSI regime. Any future rule amendment will be adopted by the CSA through the normal rule-making process.  The exemptions come into effect on January 4, 2022. Full details of the WKSI criteria and conditions are contained in the local blanket orders. CSA Staff Notice 44-306 Blanket Orders Exempting Well-known Seasoned Issuers from Certain Prospectus Requirements and the local blanket orders are available on CSA member 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.

  • Canadian Securities Administrators to establish an Investor Advisory Panel to further enhance retail investor protection
    by FCNB on 2 December 2021 at 15:03

    Montréal – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) plans to establish an Investor Advisory Panel (CSA IAP) to represent the interests of retail investors in pan-Canadian policy development activity. This initiative will further the CSA’s focus on its investor protection mandate. “We listened to retail investor advocates who expressed a need for more structured and sustained engagement with retail investors to assist in policy-making,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. “This new panel will serve as advisors to the CSA. We expect its input will provide us with meaningful insight into retail investors’ concerns to aid us in formulating rules that enhance investor protection.” The CSA IAP will be composed of experts on retail investor concerns from across the country. The CSA IAP will have two main functions: Represent retail investors to assist the CSA with its mandate, with a view to improving securities regulation and policy development, and  Enhance investor involvement in market regulation by promoting dialogue between retail investors and CSA members. The CSA IAP will provide feedback and written comments to existing and proposed CSA rules and policies, as well as ongoing concept papers and discussion drafts. It is expected to develop its own work plan and choose which topics and priorities to address, in addition to responding to CSA requests for advice and comment.  The CSA is seeking comments on the proposed CSA IAP and on the proposed terms of reference that will govern its functioning. Following the comment period, the CSA will post an announcement on its website and accept applications for participation and membership on the CSA IAP. The member selection process is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2022. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee composed of CSA members’ executives. The selection committee will recommend the nominees for appointment by the CSA Chairs for staggered terms of three years. The CSA will strive for a diverse panel in terms of geography and key demographic criteria, and will not substitute the work conducted by CSA members’ existing panels or committees. Interconnection with the Ontario Securities Commission’s well-established Investor Advisory Panel will be ensured through cross-membership of at least one member.   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 For investor inquiries, please contact your local securities regulator.  

  • FCNB launches innovative campaign targeting Millennial, DIY investors
    by FCNB on 22 November 2021 at 16:45

    The Financial and Consumer Services Commission of New Brunswick (FCNB) has launched The Right Recipe, a new investor education campaign targeting Millennial and do-it-yourself investors with resources designed specifically for them. “We know this demographic is notoriously difficult to reach and can also be disinclined to take advice from a Crown corporation,” says Marissa Sollows, Director of Education and Communications at FCNB. “So, we built a campaign that stands separate from our normal channels and uses a more familiar and relatable tone and setting to build a roadmap for DIY investor protection.”  The campaign uses YouTube, TikTok and Twitter to promote a microsite and video series depicting an affable brewmaster who has learned the hard way that – just like in his craft – he should follow the right recipe when building a portfolio.  “Canadian investors in their 20s and 30s approach their finances from a different cultural perspective than their predecessors,” explains Sollows. “Research shows they are less likely to want to work with a financial advisor and want more hands-on control over their investments – but also fear that they don’t know enough about investing and are worried about losing money.”  Campaign videos serve as explainers on a variety of topics, including fad investing, multi-level-marketing schemes, influencer scams, and high-risk investment products – while reinforcing the steps investors can take to protect themselves and their money.  “As the Provincial regulator of financial markets, it is our job to ensure that consumers of financial products are well-informed about risk and have access to information and resources they can trust,” says Sollows.  The Right Recipe campaign will run until mid-February 2022, with bilingual resources available starting November 22, on most social media platforms and on therightrecipe.ca.     About FCNB:  FCNB provides New Brunswickers with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make informed spending and investing decisions. We inform, educate, and protect over 780,000 consumers through regulation and financial education, and we regulate 36,000 industry participants who make their living working with New Brunswickers’ money. As the province’s financial and consumer services regulator, we are responsible for the administration and enforcement of provincial legislation that regulates securities, insurance, pensions, credit unions, trust and loan companies, cooperatives, and more. www.fcnb.ca
