The CSA yesterday published a proposed new national instrument to consolidate and replace the existing system fee schedules found in the SEDAR Filer Manual and NRD User Guide. According to the CSA, the amendments would result in system fees declining in about 40% of SEDAR filing situations and 24% of NRD filing situations. No significant changes to the payment process, however, are expected from a user perspective.
Comments on the proposals are being accepted until April 24, 2013. For more information, see proposed National Instrument 13-102 System Fees for SEDAR and NRD.
