The CSA announced today that the transition of responsibility for the CSA national systems is being deferred. The CSA intend to publish a future notice in regards to the new change-over date.

As we discussed on October 8, the responsibility for the CSA national systems were scheduled to be transitioned from CDS to CGI Information and Management Consultants on December 2, 2013. Since Ontario cannot delay the effective date of the amendments to certain national instruments relating to the transition, OSC staff request that Ontario market participants continue to treat CDS Inc. as the SEDAR filing service contractor, SEDI operator and NRD administrator until further notice is given. For more information, see OSC Staff Notice 13-321.
