CSA Delays CFR Conflicts of Interest Provisions

Today the CSA announced a relief order that provides registrants with an additional six months to comply with the conflicts of interest provisions in the Client Focused Reforms. Registrants will now have until June 30, 2021 to implement these changes.

The Federation thanks the CSA for responding to the immediate needs of Federation members, and to our CFR Implementation Committee Working Group members for their input. We look forward to continuing discussions with all parties towards the successful implementation of these reforms ahead of the revised deadlines.

Details of this relief can be found in the CSA notice:
