On January 14, the BCSC and four other provincial securities regulators implemented a new investment dealer prospectus exemption. This new exemption is designed to help listed companies raise money and allow retail investors to participate in private placements, while maintaining appropriate investor protection.

On February 23, 2016, the BCSC held two free sessions to learn about this new exemption directly from BCSC staff who drafted them. We:

  • described which issuers are permitted to use the exemption
  • described which dealers are permitted to assist with these distributions
  • answered frequently asked questions about the exemption
  • briefly reviewed other new capital raising exemptions for listed issuers

CPD for Lawyers: The Law Society of British Columbia approved the sessions for 1.0 hour of continuing professional development credit each.
