Legal Entity Identifiers

Where a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is required under the Amendments, the client must use an LEI that is issued in accordance with standards set by the Global Legal Entity Identifiers System (GLEIF).

GLEIF provides information on how to obtain an LEI, including a list of LEI issuing organizations for Canada, which can be accessed here.

GLEIF also maintains a publicly searchable database of all issued LEIs.
