About the Exempt Market Dealers Association of Canada.
The Exempt Market Dealers Association of Canada was founded in 2002 by a body of Exempt Market Dealers (then called Limited Market Dealers) to promote, defend and protect the exempt market industry and to provide constructive commentary on the changes in regulation that the Canadian Securities Commissions was contemplating. Since its inception the EMDA has been active in submitting comment letters on proposed legislation and has been an active voice for EMDs on numerous advisory panels. The EMDA has also organized an insurance program for EMDA members to help offset some of the costs of regulatory compliance.
Additional information on the EMDA can be accessed at www.emdacanada.com. The EMDA web-site is designed so as to keep members informed of current regulatory requirements and to post articles of importance to industry participants.
