TSX and TSXV Electronic PIF Filings
Beginning today, October 1, 2018, the TSX and TSXV will only accept electronic submissions of the Personal Information Forms (PIF) and Declarations. This follows through on the TSX Staff Notices, and TSXV Corporate Finance Bulletins issued in December 2017 and updated in June 2018.
Three of the key changes with the move to electronic submissions are:
Online Filing – Individuals will be able to complete, save, edit and submit the Electronic PIF and Electronic Declaration online.
Eliminate “wet ink” Signatures – Currently, the Paper PIF and Paper Declaration require an individual to manually sign them and expressly prohibit electronic signatures. In light of changes in technology and the increasing acceptance of electronic signatures, the need for “wet ink” signatures is eliminated, and electronic signatures are permitted for the Electronic PIF and Electronic Declaration.
Eliminate Notarization – Currently, the Paper PIF and Paper Declaration and any attachments (including any photocopies of identification of the individual) are required to be notarized. The need for notarization is eliminated in the Electronic PIF and Electronic Declaration.
All PIFs and Declarations will now be submitted via the online portal found HERE.
