February 12, 2013

Last week, IIROC released a notice to address inquiries received regarding amendments to UMIR, effective March 1, that are intended to align IIROC's trading supervisory requirements with the requirements found in NI 23-103 Electronic Trading.

The notice released yesterday answers questions regarding certain specific circumstances that require notification, as well as providing information regarding how to contact IIROC and the type of information required.
