CSA

The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) is an umbrella organization of Canada’s provincial and territorial securities regulators whose objective is to improve, coordinate and harmonize regulation of the Canadian capital markets.

It aims to achieve consensus on policy decisions which affect our capital market and its participants. It also aims to work collaboratively in the delivery of regulatory programs across Canada, such as the review of continuous disclosure and prospectus filings.

RULES

As a result of the harmonization efforts of the CSA, securities markets are governed by a number of largely harmonized national or multi-lateral instruments which apply to:

  • efficiency of the securities market and trading rules,
  • registration and related matters,
  • the distribution of securities,
  • continuous disclosure,
  • take-over bids and special transactions,
  • securities transactions outside the jurisdiction,
  • mutual funds,
  • Derivatives.
