The Exempt Market Dealer - known as EMD - category replaces the LMD category, making the EMD registration category uniform across the country.
Did You Know?
o Existing LMDs automatically become EMDs on September 28, 2009. You don’t have to apply.
o EMDs have capital and proficiency requirements. LMDs had none.
o Not all LMDs will require registration as EMDs under NI 31-103. It’s up to you to make the determination.
o The EMD registration requirement will apply differently in certain parts of the country.
These and other important changes in the regulation of the exempt market under NI 31-103 are discussed below in this issue.
