APPENDIX H
IFRS-Related Amendments to Rules

The CSA, except the Autorité des marchés financiers, have approved minor IFRS-related amendments to National Instrument 13-101 System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR), National Instrument 21-101 Marketplace Operation, National Instrument 52-110 Audit Committees, National Instrument 54-101 Communication with Beneficial Owners of Securities of a Reporting Issuer. These amendments are set out in Schedule 1 to this Appendix.

The CSA, except the Autorité des marchés financiers and the Ontario Securities Commission, have approved minor IFRS-related amendments to Multilateral Instrument 11-102 Passport System and Multilateral Instrument 62-104 Take-Over Bids and Issuer Bids. These amendments are set out in Schedule 2 to this Appendix.

The Autorité des marchés financiers has not yet approved the amendments set out in Schedules 1 and 2 to this Appendix. Instead, it has decided to release Schedules 1 and 2 today for a 30-day comment period. The expectation is that these amendments will be subsequently approved on a sufficiently timely basis so that they will come into force in Québec at the same time as the rest of the CSA jurisdictions.

With regard to the amendments in Schedule 2, the Ontario Securities Commission has not approved these amendments because Ontario is not party to the multilateral instruments referenced in Schedule 2.
