(CSA) today announced the adoption of amendments to National Policy
(NP) 11-201 Delivery of Documents by Electronic Means.
The amended policy will replace the current NP 11-201 and will come into
force on November 18, 2011 when it will be renamed National Policy
11-201 Electronic Delivery of Documents.
In Québec, NP 11-201 will replace Notice 11-201 related to the Delivery of Documents by Electronic Means.
NP 11-201 explains how Canadian securities legislation obligations for
the delivery of documents may be satisfied by electronic means. The
