On October 3, 2008, the Autorité des marchés financiers (the AMF) published for comment a draft of the Derivatives Regulation (the Regulation) under the Derivatives Act (Québec) (the Act). The draft Regulation follows the June adoption by the Québec government of the Act, which provides a legislative framework that will govern derivatives activities within the province of Québec. We summarized the key principles of that legislation in our July 2008 BLG Investment Management Advisory Québec National Assembly Adopts Legislation to Govern Derivatives, which is available on our website www.blg.com.
