Sep 20, 2018

On September 20, 2018, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) published its annual Summary of Oversight and Regulatory Activities, which highlights its key initiatives for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

As in 2017, the summary presents the main deficiencies identified in companies’ continuous disclosure and financing documents and provides examples of corrected information and reminders to help them prepare compliant documents. New content for this year includes a section on the booming cryptocurrency and marijuana industries, as well as a section on socially responsible investing based on environmental, social and governance criteria. The AMF is taking a closer look at the information provided to investors in these areas and, among other things, has published a notice on the disclosure of climate change-related risks and financial impacts.

The summary also contains an initial report on the application of the Act respecting transparency measures in the mining, oil and gas industries and outlines several regulatory initiatives.

Review the press release and the summary on the AMF's website.
