Canadian securities regulators publish blanket relief for market participants due to COVID-19

  • Securities - CSA Image

Mar 23, 2020

On March 23, 2020, further to its announcement on March 18, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) published temporary blanket relief for market participants from certain regulatory filings, as a result of COVID-19.

The blanket relief provides a 45-day extension for periodic filings normally required to be made by issuers, investment funds, registrants, certain regulated entities and designated rating organizations on or before June 1, 2020 and for certain other requirements outlined in the orders. Market participants need to comply with the conditions in the blanket relief to use the extension.

The CSA is implementing the relief through local blanket orders that are substantially harmonized across the country. Market participants can view these orders on CSA members’ websites and are encouraged to contact their principal regulator with any questions.

The CSA is closely monitoring the situation and will consider whether further relief or extension is necessary.

Review the press release on the CSA's website.
