Reporting issuers are companies whose securities are publicly traded. These companies are required to make disclosure on a continuing basis of their business activities by filing documents with the superintendent of securities as required by securities rules and legislation. In Canada, these documents are available free of charge through SEDAR (System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval).
You can check to see if a company is a Reporting Issuer in Newfoundland and Labrador by conducting a search through SEDAR. To verify whether a Reporting Issuer is in default please contact the Financial Services Regulation Division.
