On July 28, 2003, the Director accepted an information statement dated June 2003 (the 2003 Information Statement) under section 4.2 of Ontario Securities Commission Rule 91-501 – Strip Bonds (the Strip Bond Rule). The 2003 Information Statement was submitted by the Investment Dealers Association, the predecessor of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).
On June 4, 2014, the Director accepted a revised form of strip bond information statement (the 2014 Information Statement) submitted by IIROC pursuant to section 4.2 of the Strip Bond Rule. The Director's acceptance is evidenced in a decision document dated June 4, 2014. IIROC has asked IIROC-regulated investment dealers to begin using the 2014 Information Statement no later than January 2, 2015.
