For further information on the changes below, please contact one of the authors above or any member of our Financial Services Regulatory or Capital Markets Groups.

The CSA announced a 45-day extension for periodic filings by capital markets participants that are required to be made on or before June 1, 2020, including financial statements, management reports of fund performance (MRFPs) and other continuous disclosure of reporting issuers. We expect that the audited annual financial statements of registered firms with a December 31 year end, as well as true-up participation fee calculations in Ontario, which would normally be due on March 31, 2020, will be included within the scope of this blanket relief. We will continue to keep you updated as the CSA provides further details.
