Notice-and-access provisions effective this week

February 14, 2013

The Ontario Securities Commission confirmed today that it has received Ministerial approval of amendments to NI 54-101 that give reporting issuers and others the option to use "notice-and-access" for proxy-related materials. As we discussed last month, the amendments, which came into force on February 11, are intended to help simplify the shareholder communication process and reduce costs.
