Voluntary XBRL Filing Program Launched in Canada
The voluntary filing program launched this month will not replace the official PDF filing required by securities regulators. The program, outlined in CSA Notice 51-323, will provide additional information to the public through the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) web site. The Notice and request for volunteers is available on several CSA member web sites. Issuers interested in joining the voluntary filing program should contact one of the CSA staff members listed in the Notice.
“We invite issuers to join the voluntary filing program. We are committed to learning more about technologies that can help improve efficiency in our marketplace,” St-Gelais concluded.
