MINISTERIAL APPROVAL

AMENDMENTS TO
OSC RULE 13-502 FEES
AND
OSC RULE 13-503
(COMMODITY FUTURES ACT) FEES



On March 18, 2010, the Minister of Finance approved amendments to OSC Rule 13-502 Fees and OSC Rule 13-503 (Commodity Futures Act) Fees made by the Ontario Securities Commission. The material approved by the Minister was published in the January 22, 2010 Bulletin after having been made by the Commission on January 19, 2010, except that the approved material reflected the minor corrections to OSC Rule 13-503 that are described below.

The amendments to these OSC Rules come into force on April 5, 2010. Two amendments to the Companion Policies to these OSC Rules also become effective on the same date.

Minor numbering and grammatical corrections relating to OSC Rule 13-503 were made on February 8, 2010 by a quorum of the Commission:

  1. The reference in section 6 of the amending instrument for the amendments to OSC Rule 13-503 to “Appendix A, as enacted by section 2,…” is now corrected to read “Appendix A, as enacted by section 5,….”.
  2. The reference in section 7 of the amending instrument for the amendments to OSC Rule 13-503 to “Appendix A, as enacted by section 3,…” is now corrected to read “Appendix A, as enacted by section 6,….”.
  3. The reference in section 2 of the amending instrument for the Companion Policy to OSC Rule 13-503 to “added” is now corrected to read “adding”.
  4. The additional section added in the amendment to the Companion Policy to OSC Rule 13-503 is now numbered as “2.9” rather than “2.8”, which reflects that there is already a section 2.8 in that Companion Policy.

The text of the approved amendments and the amendments to the Companion Policies can be found in Chapter 5 to today’s Bulletin and on the OSC website at www.osc.gov.on.ca. Updated unofficial consolidations of OSC Rules 13-502 and 13-503 and the Companion Policies are being posted on the OSC website.
