The EMDA is a strong national voice for the exempt market. The EMDA monitors key issues affecting the exempt market, in particular the national rules of the Canadian securities regulatory authorities, including: 1) registration and compliance rules for EMDs under NI 31-103; and 2) exempt product rules for issuers and exempt client rules for issuers and dealers under NI 45-106.
The EMDA has made detailed written submissions to securities regulators and we meet regularly with senior representatives of the provincial securities commissions to advance the issues facing the exempt market professionals. We believe that a strong national voice for all exempt market professionals is critical to the success of our capital markets across Canada.
