AMENDMENTS RESPECTING MARKET TRANSPARENCY IN TRADING OF DOMESTIC DEBT SECURITIES

NOTICE OF COMMISSION APPROVAL

The Ontario Securities Commission has approved IIROC’s proposed amendments to Dealer Member Rule 2100. The amendments ensure Dealer Member Rule 2100 remains current in light of the cessation of CANPX Inc. to operate as an information processor on June 30, 2016. The amendments accommodate any entity who acts as an information processor and ensure consistency with the requirements in National Instrument 21-101.

The proposed amendments were published for comment on June 2, 2016. No public comments were received. No changes to the proposed amendments, as set out in Notice 16-0117, were made.

The amendments are effective immediately. A copy of the IIROC Notice including the amendments can be found at http://www.osc.gov.on.ca.

In addition, the Alberta Securities Commission, the Autorité des marchés financiers, the British Columbia Securities Commission, the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan, the Financial and Consumer Services Commission of New Brunswick, the Manitoba Securities Commission, the Nova Scotia Securities Commission, the Office of the Superintendent of Securities, Service Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Prince Edward Island Office of the Superintendent of Securities Office have approved or not objected to the amendments.
