Sep 19, 2019

On September 19, 2019, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) published its annual Summary of Oversight and Regulatory Activities, which details the key initiatives of the Direction principale du financement des sociétés (“Corporate Finance”) for the 2018-2019 financial year.

After presenting a profile of companies and the outcomes of continuous disclosure reviews, the summary outlines the main deficiencies observed by the AMF in its oversight activities and gives examples of corrected disclosure. As in previous years, the summary discloses some key figures regarding the representation of women on boards and in executive officer positions of Québec companies, thus helping to monitor progress on this issue.

The AMF also recaps draft regulatory initiatives and staff notices that were published during the past financial year. Lastly, in the section on innovation, the AMF presents the efforts taken to establish a framework for crypto-asset trading platforms and to migrate the SEDAR, SEDI and NRD national electronic systems to a central system.

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