Pursuant to their earlier Notice, the CSA have now announced that proposed NP 11-204 Process for Registration in Multiple Jurisdictions and amendments to other Passport-related instruments and policies have been approved. The new National Policy sets out the processes for registration in multiple jurisdictions, while the amendments to existing Passport rules address issues that have arisen since Phase II of Passport was implemented in March 2008.

Today's notice by the CSA states that, since implementation of passport for registrants is dependent on the adoption of proposed NI 31-103 Registration Requirements, the changes described in the immediate notice will only be implemented once NI 31-103 comes into effect, which is expected to occur by the end of April 2009.
