On January 12, 2010, the Minister of Finance approved amendments to National Instrument 21-101 Marketplace Operation and National Instrument 23-101 Trading Rules, which were originally published in November 2009 with technical corrections made in December 2009. The amendments not related to the "order protection rule" (i.e. changes other than to Part 6 of NI 23-101) are scheduled to come into force on January 28, 2010. Those related to the "order protection rule" will come into force on February 1, 2011. The Canadian Securities Administrators intend to publish a notice shortly that will outline the expected milestone dates regarding the implementation of the "order protection rule".
