Dear Clients:Please note that effective, September 15, 2006, the BC Securities Commission will no longer issue certificates that:
an issuer is a reporting issuer
a reporting issuer is not in default of filing financial statements required by BC securities legislation or paying prescribed fees.
If you need to determine whether an issuer is a reporting issuer or is in default, you could:
refer to the definition of “reporting issuer” in subsection 1(1) of the Act
(www.qp.gov.bc.ca/statreg/stat/S/96418_01.htm) to assess whether an issuer is a reporting issuer,
refer to the list of issuers in default on the Commission’s website
(www.bcsc.bc.ca/crequirements.asp?id=271) to determine whether an issuer is in default, or
research disclosure about public companies and mutual funds on the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com)
