Vancouver - The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) today announced the adoption of amendments to National Policy (NP) 11-201 Delivery of Documents by Electronic Means.

The amended policy will replace the current NP 11-201 and will come into force on November 18, 2011 when it will be renamed National Policy 11-201 Electronic Delivery of Documents.

In Québec, NP 11-201 will replace Notice 11-201 related to the Delivery of Documents by Electronic Means.

NP 11-201 explains how Canadian securities legislation obligations for the delivery of documents may be satisfied by electronic means. The amended NP 11-201 takes into account changes in legislation and technology, ensuring the policy remains up-to date.

In drafting the amended policy, the CSA considered a number of submissions that were received during the 60-day comment period (April 29 - June 29, 2011).

To view the amended policy, please refer to the CSA Notice on NP 11-201, which is available on the websites of various CSA members. This link will open in a new window
