TSX Intends to Digitize PIFs

June 9, 2017

The ability to electronically sign personal information forms (PIFs) and declarations required by the Toronto Stock Exchange is being considered pursuant to proposed amendments to the TSX Company Manual published for comment on June 1, 2017. The proposed amendments would also remove the requirement that a PIF, a declaration or a TSX listing application be notarized by a public notary in an effort to improve client experience and reduce regulatory burden on TSX-listed issuers. As indicated in the request for comments, the TSX intends to automate and make PIFs and declarations digitally available in the future. There are currently no similar plans to automate and digitize the listing application.

The proposed amendments are open for comment until July 4, 2017. For further information, please see Amendments to Toronto Stock Exchange Company Manual (June 1, 2017).
