MONTRÉAL, July 6, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today released a report on the work achieved under its three-year Business Plan for the period of April 1, 2013 through June 30, 2016.

The report outlines the accomplishments of CSA Members during this period in the areas of:

  • retail investor protection,
  • capital raising by small and medium sized enterprises and exempt market initiatives,
  • shareholder democracy and protection,
  • market regulation,
  • enforcement effectiveness, and
  • information technology.

"In June 2013, CSA Members embarked on an ambitious three-year plan encompassing deliverables in all areas fundamental to our mission, with a particular emphasis on investor protection initiatives," said Louis Morisset, Chair of the CSA and Chair and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. "While future deliverables will be highlighted in our upcoming Business Plan for 2016-2019, it is important to acknowledge the impressive body of work completed by the CSA Members' staff working collectively over the past three years."

The CSA Report on Achievements for 2013-2016 is available on the websites of the CSA and its various members.
