Filing & Fees

Issuers file disclosure documents with the BCSC and other Canadian securities regulators. Filings are made through different platforms, including BCSC eServices, SEDAR, and SEDI. Issuers are charged various filing fees, which fund the BCSC’s operations.

BCSC eServices is where issuers must file exempt sales reports and quarterly reports for OTC trading. If you have any questions about filing or using BCSC eServices, you can refer to the FAQs page.

Reporting issuers use SEDAR to file various disclosure documents and SEDI to file insider reports.

The BCSC receives no government or taxpayer funding, relying entirely on fees paid by securities market participants, including companies that issue securities, registered investment firms and registered investment advisors.
