The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today published its final version of amendments to NI 31-103 Registration Requirements and Exemptions. The amendments, which are intended to "improve the day-to-day operation of the Instrument for both industry and regulators", were initially published for comment in June 2010. While the amendments are focused primarily on the June 2010 proposals, the Instrument is still subject to further proposals relating to investment fund manager registration. Provided all necessary approvals are obtained, the amendments will come into force on July 11, 2011.
