On June 30, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) published an Interim Progress Report on the CSA’s 2019-2022 Business Plan (Report). The Report tracks the CSA’s progress on the goals set out in its 2019-2022 business plan, describes the CSA’s accomplishments outside of the business plan, and provides an overview of the regulatory work that the CSA plans to undertake in the coming year. Notably, its work plan for the coming year includes:

  • Renewing CSA members’ focus on strengthening the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments (OBSI) as an independent dispute resolution service provider;
  • Working with the Canadian Council of Insurance Regulators (CCIR) to develop a consistent approach to disclosure of cost and performance-related information by investment funds and segregated funds; and
  • Working on guidance regarding the regulatory framework applicable to crypto-asset trading platforms that are subject to securities regulation.
