After presenting a profile of Québec companies, the summary sets out the AMF’s key findings from its oversight activities and provides industry stakeholders with guidance on preparing regulatory compliant offering and continuous disclosure documents.
As in previous years, the AMF also provides an overview of recent and ongoing regulatory initiatives, including both projects to reduce compliance burden and projects to address current environmental, social and governance issues.
Lastly, in the section dedicated to innovation, the AMF discusses recent developments in connection with the regulation of cryptoasset trading platforms and the migration of the national electronic systems to SEDAR+.
