Canadian securities regulators announce enhanced policy concerning electronic delivery of documents

VANCOUVER, Nov. 18, 2011 /CNW/ - The Canadian Securities Administrators (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 amended NP 11-201 takes into account changes in legislation and technology, ensuring the policy remains up-to date.

In drafting the amended policy, the CSA considered a number of submissions that were received during the 60-day comment period (April 29 - June 29, 2011).

To view the amended policy, please refer to the CSA Notice on NP 11-201, which is available on the websites of various CSA members.

The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada's provinces and territories, coordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.
