OSC’s Regulatory Burden Reduction Proposals - Potential Benefits to Investment Funds and Registrants

On November 19, 2019, the Ontario Securities Commission released Reducing Regulatory Burden in Ontario’s Capital Markets (the Report). The Report responds to the feedback provided to the OSC from stakeholders (including BLG’s feedback, available here), and outlines the specific ways in which the OSC plans to reduce unnecessary burden on capital markets participants operating in Ontario. Of the 107 decisions and recommendations outlined in the Report, close to 70 of them will directly affect investment funds and securities registrants. Certain projects have already been proposed and implementation of the applicable rule changes are well underway (see BLG’s Investment Management bulletins from October 2019 and July 2019 for further information).
