We have a mutual reliance review system ("MRRS") for prospectuses (including long form, short form and mutual fund prospectuses), prospectus amendments, waiver applications, pre-filings, and initial and renewal annual information forms. It is described in National Policy 43-201 Mutual Reliance Review System for Prospectuses and Annual Information Forms.
The principal regulator will only issue a MRRS decision document confirming the receipt of non-principal regulators that are open on the date of the MRRS decision document. The principal regulator will issue a MRRS decision document confirming the receipt of the remaining non-principal regulators on the next day that they are open. These procedures are described in section 7.8 of the Policy.
A dealer may only solicit expressions of interest in a non-principal jurisdiction after a receipt has been issued by that jurisdiction. In addition, an issuer may only distribute its securities in the non-principal jurisdiction at that time.
The following is a list of the closed dates of the securities regulatory authorities for 2002. These dates should be noted by issuers in structuring their affairs.
