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,
  • mutual funds,
  • Derivatives.

National instruments, multilateral instruments, national policies and CSA notices are not available on the CSA website but rather on our members’ websites. Please link to any of the following CSA members to consult these documents:
