Purpose of this Notice

The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) continuous disclosure (CD) program is designed to identify material disclosure deficiencies that affect the reliability and accuracy of a reporting issuer’s (issuers) disclosure record. Reliable and accurate information is critical to strengthen investor confidence and efficient capital markets. In any given year, issuers are affected by new accounting standards and regulatory changes and these are areas that we generally emphasize in our CD review program. The CD review program has two fundamental objectives: education and compliance. See CSA Staff Notice 51-312 - (Revised) Harmonized Continuous Disclosure Review Program for further details on the program.

This notice summarizes the results of the CD review program of issuers other than investment funds for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010 (fiscal 2010).
