On June 14, 2018, the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV, and together with the TSX, the TMX Exchanges) announced that they were extending the deadline beyond which certain documents can only be submitted in electronic format.

The TMX Exchanges will now continue to accept current paper versions of the TSX Form 4 and TSXV Form 2A Personal Information Form (PIF) and the related TSX Form 4B and TSXV Form 2C1 Declaration until September 30, 2018. Such documents, when filed electronically, do not need to be notarized and are executed by the individual with an electronic signature, eliminating the need to submit an original of an executed copy to the TMX Exchanges.

Individuals have been able to populate their PIF and Declaration on the TMX Portal since late 2017, and the TMX Exchanges have attempted to encourage electronic filings.

Additionally, the TSX has granted the same extension in respect of its amended listing application; the amended application no longer has to be notarized.

This represents an extension to the prior deadline of June 30, 2018, which we discussed in a previous post on this blog. For more information, access the online versions of the relevant TSX staff notice and TSXV bulletin.
