About Exempt Market Filings on SEDAR

Beginning May 24, 2016, exempt market filers reporting to jurisdictions other than British Columbia and Ontario will no longer have the option of filing certain reports in paper. These reports will be filed and fees paid electronically via SEDAR on form 45-106 at the time of filing.

Early Adoption for Exempt Market SEDAR Filers

Exempt market filings can be submitted via SEDAR on a voluntary basis from December 7, 2015 to May 24, 2016. Exempt market filers may find it cost effective to begin submitting these reports via SEDAR immediately.

Filings via SEDAR

Documents are filed and fees paid via SEDAR through subscription software. Exempt market filers will find it more cost effective to work with Newsfile instead of subscribing to, configuring, and learning how to use the software.
