Introduction
The commission, together with the other members of the Canadian Securities Administrators (“CSA”), are making amendments to National Instrument 14-101 Definitions (“NI 14-101”) effective December 31, 2002.

We published the amendments for comment on September 28, 2001. No comments were received. We published advance notice of the amendments on October 18, 2002.

Summary of Amendments
The amendments add a reference to Nunavut in the appendices to NI 14-101 and clarify the definitions of “insider reporting requirement” and “jurisdiction”. The amendments also delete the terms “multilateral instrument” and “national instrument”, as they are unnecessary. 

The amendments add the terms “provincial and territorial securities directions”, “provincial and territorial securities legislation” and “provincial and territorial securities regulatory authorities”. These terms have the same definitions as “Canadian securities directions”, “Canadian securities legislation” and “Canadian securities regulatory authorities”, and will be the terms used in future national and multilateral instruments in the same context. Because the terms “Canadian securities directions”, “Canadian securities legislation” and “Canadian securities regulatory authorities” are already used in existing national and multilateral instruments, they have not been deleted from the
NI 14-101.
