Summary

The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) have published CSA Staff Notice 43-309, which summarizes the findings of staff of the Autorité des marchés financiers, the British Columbia Securities Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission and outlines the CSA’s expectations for website and investor presentation disclosure by mining issuers.
