The exempt market involves securities issued in Canada under National Instrument 45-106 (“NI 45-106”). Issuances pursuant to NI 45-106 are exempt from prospectus requirements, and as such typically go to market more quickly and less expensively. This presentation will focus generally on the more common exemptions currently used in Ontario: (1) Private Issuer Exemption; (2) Accredited Investor Exemption and (3) the $150,000 Minimum Amount Exemption. There will be a discussion of the proposed amendments to NI 45-106 which may create additional opportunities for exempt market investment, including the proposed adoption of (1) Offering Memorandum exemption in Ontario; (2) Family, friends and Business Associates exemption in Ontario and (3) Crowdfunding exemption.
We will also discuss recent leading cases decided on damages, including Bhasin v. Hrynew and decisions concerning private placement rules and crowdfunding.
