BCN 2001/27 - CSA and Joint Forum of Financial Market Regulators - 81-401 Request for Comment on Proposed Regulatory Principles for Capital Accumulation Plans [BCN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 2001-04-27
Effective Date: 2001-04-27

On April 27, 2001, the Joint Forum of Financial Market Regulators, including the Canadian Securities Administrators, released a consultation paper titled “Proposed Regulatory Principles for Capital Accumulation Plans” for comment. This paper can be located on our website under number 81-401.

The paper proposes broad regulatory principles for disclosure and other regulatory protection for investors who belong to capital accumulation plans.  In this paper, capital accumulation plans include defined contribution pension plans, group registered retirement savings plans, deferred profit sharing plans and employee profit sharing plans. 

The regulatory principles are focused on providing a similar level of protection to investors in each of these types of capital accumulation plans, regardless of which regulatory legislation applies to the plan.

The paper describes where comments and questions can be directed.  All comments received by July 31, 2001 will be considered.
