On March 24th, 2021, the Board of Directors (the Board) of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) approved the publication for comment of proposed amendments to Form 1 and corollary amendments to the IIROC Rules (Proposed Amendments).

The Proposed Amendments seek to improve the overall consistency of the IIROC requirements by providing greater clarity and conciseness of certain defined terms and incorporating plain language writing conventions within Form 1. The Proposed Amendments are expected to be implemented on December 31, 2021 which is the same implementation date as that for the IIROC Rules.
