SEDAR+ is the new web-based technology platform that will be used by all market participants to file, disclose, and search for issuer information in Canada’s capital markets.
At launch on July 25, 2023, SEDAR+ will replace SEDAR, the Cease Trade Order (CTO) database, the Disciplined List (DL database, and certain filings made in paper or in the British Columbia Securities Commission’s eServices system and the Ontario Securities Commission’s electronic portal. At this time, SEDAR+ will also include a consolidated reporting issuers list from all provincial and territorial regulators.
For more information on SEDAR+ see the SEDAR+ Information Site.
SEDAR+ will use a modern Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) process for all fees. Payments for Report of Exempt Distribution (RED) Filings.
After launch, filing organizations with SEDAR+ accounts can set up their banking information directly in SEDAR+. Since filing fees must be paid when the filing is submitted, each SEDAR+ account must have a Pre-Authorized Debt (PAD) account in place to submit their first filing.
SEDAR+ requires one organization account per legal entity (no separate branch office accounts) and only one PAD account to be used for EFT payments of SEDAR+ filing fees. This may lead to some internal process changes for filing agents who file on behalf of multiple clients.
For more information about setting up a Pre-Authorized Debit Account please see the SEDAR+ Launch page.
