    Securities Industry Participants

     

    Corporate Finance Filings

    • There is no change in filing requirements in the event of a postal strike. For Corporate Finance filings, most companies and investment funds already file these documents electronically through SEDAR, or SEDI and there is public access to these filings at www.sedar.com and www.sedi.ca
    • Companies and individuals that need to submit filings that are not required to be made     electronically on SEDAR or SEDI, should send them via email to tony.herdzik@gov.sk.ca, by fax (306) 787-5899 or by courier.  

     

    Relief From Requirement To Deliver Financial Statements And Related Disclosure 

    • For Issuers:  Under General Order 11-501, a company is exempt from the requirement to deliver financial statements and MD&A to its shareholders, provided that the company:
      • complies with its filing requirements;
      • issues a news release notifying shareholders that the disclosure is available on-line and will be sent to shareholders who request copies; and
      • sends the documents to shareholders once postal service resumes.
    • For investment funds: General Order 11-502 contains a similar exemption from the requirement to deliver financial statements and management reports of fund performance to security holders. 
    • Affected companies and investment funds should refer to these instruments and review the conditions carefully to determine if they are eligible for the relief.
