NIN 95/38 - Information Sessions on Rules, Amendments to the Securities Act, and Repeal and Replacement of the Regulation and Registration Transfer Regulation [NIN - Rescinded]

Published Date: 1995-11-24
Effective Date: 1996-01-01
The British Columbia Securities Commission is publishing a Special Supplement to the Weekly Summary containing the Rules, a substantial package of amendments to the Securities Act, a repealed and replaced Regulation and Registration Transfer Regulation, and certain forms. These amendments reflect a number of important initiatives of the Government and the Commission, as well as the response of the Government to the Matkin Report. The amendments will be brought into force effective January 1, 1996.

The amendments to the Act were all previously published in the Weekly Summary in 1989, 1990, 1992 and in the summer of 1995. The bulk of the amendments to the Regulation and Registration Transfer Regulation were published for comment in October 1994, at which time information sessions were held for securities industry participants to explain the provisions and to receive comment on them.

To help securities industry participants understand the proposals that will soon be in effect, the Commission will be holding another series of information sessions. These sessions, directed at specific industry sectors, will provide a general overview of the amendments and direct participants attention to the elements most likely to affect them.

Securities industry participants are accordingly invited to attend one of the following sessions:
