Access Rules & Policies

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, and
  • mutual funds.
