On March 23, 2015, the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) adopted BC Instrument 51-512 – Certain Private Placements (BCI 51-512) which provides certain disclosure exemptions in the case of securities offered to sophisticated Canadian investors on a private placement basis. This development is the latest in a series of actions taken by Canadian provincial securities regulators since 2012 to reduce hurdles for international dealers and issuers engaging in cross-border offerings to sophisticated Canadian investors. Through this series of actions, Canada’s provincial securities regulators have, where the exemptions are available, eliminated the time and expense associated with preparing a document to supplement the foreign offering document to satisfy technical Canadian securities law requirements (a Canadian Wrapper). The aim of these exemptions is to broaden the range of investment opportunities available to Canadian investors, without compromising investor protection. Read more
