As the leading voice for Canada’s mineral exploration and development sector, the PDAC views the establishment of the Cooperative Capital Markets Regulatory System as an instrumental step in helping our members succeed in financing their exploration activities. It seeks to create a harmonized regulatory system for our industry across Canada that is efficient and will help contribute economic growth. Read our press release/op-ed on the announcement (Fixing a Fragmented Regulatory System) that was submitted to the Private Capital Markets magazine, as well as a featured story in PDAC's Core magazine (Towards a Common Regulator: The Capital Markets Regulatory System).
We encourage our members to provide comments on the revised Capital Markets Act (CMA) and the initial regulations. You can provide comments directly to the new Capital Markets Regulatory Authority (CMRA) here. For more information on PDAC's recommendations and information about the CMRA, please read below.
