The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) announced on September 3, 2015 that amendments would be made to a number of national and multilateral instruments, to ensure that the rules applicable to issuers listed on senior recognized Canadian exchanges (such as the TSX) also apply to those listed on Aequitas NEO Exchange.  The amendments are made to, among other national instruments, National Instrument 41-101 General Prospectus Requirements, National Instrument 44-101 Short Form Prospectus Distributions, National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions and, in Ontario and Quebec, Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.  The CSA published these amendments for comment on December 11, 2014.

The amendments are expected to come into force on November 17, 2015.
