NIN 90/22 - Filing of Specified Forms [NIN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 1990-06-15
Effective Date: 1990-06-14
Section 158(1) of the Securities Act (the "Act") authorizes the Superintendent of Brokers to specify the form, content and other particulars of a record required to be filed in a required form (the "Required Form") under the Act and the Securities Regulation (the "Regulation").

Certain types of Required Forms (such as Forms 12 to 15, 24, 27, 28, 30 to 35, 41, 43, 50 and 51) provide an outline of their contents. Information may be added to this type of form whether or not such information is specifically referred to in the outline. Where the section of the Regulation respecting such a form or the Required Form itself specifically indicates that inapplicable sections may be deleted, a person completing the Required Form may modify or delete sections of the Required Form. For example, section 90(2) of the Regulation permits a person using a Required Form of prospectus to delete inapplicable items or items answered in the negative. Similarly, Form 30, the Required Form of information circular, indicates that no statement need be made in response to any item that is inapplicable and negative answers to any item may be omitted.

Except as permitted by this notice, other types of Required Forms (such as Forms 4, 5, 7, 11, 20, 20A, 23 and 37) must be completed and filed without additions, deletions or modifications. Where this type or Required Form contains inapplicable sections, lines may be drawn through the inapplicable sections or "N/A" may be inserted next to or beneath the inapplicable sections. Where deletions are made for reasons other than to cross out inapplicable alternatives set out in the Required Form, the reasons for such deletions must be set out in a letter accompanying the Required Form. For example, section 2 of Form 20A, which states that the purchaser is beneficial owner of the securities, may be deleted where the purchaser is a portfolio manager purchasing for fully manager accounts and this fact is set out in a letter accompanying the Required Form. Information that is not submitted is the Required Form will not be considered to be "filed" under the Act.

DATED at Vancouver, British Columbia, this 14th day of June 1990.
