The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) today released a notice regarding the disclosure of corporate governance and environmental matters by reporting issuers other than investment funds. Specifically, the OSC stated that it will conduct a review of issuers' compliance withNI 58-101 Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices during 2010 in order to assess the adequacy of corporate governance disclosure in information circulars (and AIF and MD&A where applicable) filed in the spring of 2010.

With respect to environmental disclosure guidance, the OSC intends to issue guidance by December 2010 on compliance with environmental disclosure requirements under NI 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations. For more information on issues surrounding environmental disclosure obligations, see Jeffrey Elliott's post of January 2009.
