NRD Enrolment


On January 11, 2014, the operation of NRD and the NRD website was transferred from CDS INC. to a new service provider engaged by the British Columbia Securities Commission, Alberta Securities Commission, Ontario Securities Commission and Autorité des marchés financiers, as representative stakeholders of the thirteen Provincial and Territorial securities regulatory authorities of Canada.

The rights and obligations of CDS INC. in certain NRD enrolment and account forms were assigned as of January 11, 2014, to the Alberta Securities Commission ("ASC"), as the representative securities regulatory authority authorized to grant licenses and enter into agreements with users of NRD and the NRD website. Commencing January 11, 2014, the ASC will be party to and manage the contractual relations with all users of NRD and the NRD website.
