2016 Securities Year in Review

March 2017 Securities Bulletin < 1 minute read

Through our annual Securities Year in Review publication we seek to highlight key changes in the capital markets sector, particularly with respect to significant changes in securities laws.

In this respect, 2016 was a notable year for capital markets in Canada with important developments in several areas, including the take-over bid regime, prospectus exemptions, reporting and disclosure requirements and dividend reinvestment plan rules. Although most of the amendments were evolutionary rather than revolutionary, they are nonetheless significant for issuers and other stakeholders and hold promise for certain landmark changes in the future.

As we move into 2017, we continue to regularly monitor securities laws developments. Updates on issues relating to capital markets and corporate law are routinely published by McMillan lawyers on our website. In case you require information about specific issues please do not hesitate to get in touch with us
