OSC Announces Updated Commission’s Book of Authorities

TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission today published an updated Book of Authorities. The Book of Authorities contains cases that have been frequently cited in Commission decisions.

When filing hearing materials for use by adjudicative panels of the Commission, a party relying on a case listed in the Book of Authorities is not required to reproduce the case in its entirety. See the Commission’s Practice Guideline for details on the use of the Book of Authorities in tribunal proceedings.

Copies of the Book of Authorities will be maintained in each hearing room. The Book of Authorities is also available in electronic format on the Commission’s website.
