Starting on June 1st, 2016, CGI will assume responsibility for preparing, configuring, testing, deploying, and then running and maintaining a new system to replace the CSA National Systems (e.g. SEDAR, SEDI, Cease-Trade Order Database, National Registration Database, National Registration Search and Disciplined List) with a single integrated solution. The new system, based on commercial software, will deliver secure transactions and ease of use as well as respond to future regulatory changes and requirements.

This new system is expected to be delivered in stages throughout 2018 and 2019. A CSA/CGI transition team will work with stakeholder groups who currently use the existing systems to assist them in effectively preparing for and using the new systems.

The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories, co-ordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.
