After over five years of consultation, on July 17, 2009, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) released, in final form, National Instrument 31-103 Registration Requirements and Exemptions and various related instruments, including amendments to or revocations of various national and local existing instruments. National Instrument 31-103 and the related instruments will come into force on September 28, 2009, subject to governmental approvals. The various amendments to provincial securities legislation enacted over the past few years that are necessary to allow National Instrument 31-103 to be implemented, including Schedule 26 to Bill 162 in Ontario, are also expected to be proclaimed in force on the same time-table.
