Reporting Issuers

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 good standing, please contact the Office of the Superintendent of Securities.

The Office of the Superintendent of Securities requires at least 24 hour notice for all requests to verify whether a reporting issuer is in good standing in Newfoundland and Labrador. The cost to issue a certificate is $50. Please be advised the Office’s hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 4:30 pm (NL time). For a complete list of the closed dates, please visit here.
