Exemptions, Commission & Director's Orders
The exemptions branch is responsible for reviewing and advising the Commission with respect to applications for exemptions from various requirements of securities legislation, including the registration and prospectus requirements.
This section contains local orders, rulings and decisions issued by the Commission in connection with applications made under the Securities Act (Nova Scotia) and decisions made under the Mutual Reliance Review System (MRRS) and Natioal Policy 11-203 Process for Exemptive Relief Applications in Multiple Jurisdictions (NP 11-203) where the Commission acted as the principal regulator.
For decisons made under MRRS and NP 11-203 where the Commission is not the principal regulator, please see our Links Page which contains links to the websites of the Securities Commission of the other jurisdictions.
Decisions made by the Commission resulting from an enforcement hearing or settlement agreement are published under Enforcement Proceedings on the Compliance & Enforcement section of this website.
Applications for exemptive relief should be forwarded to NSSCEXEMPTIONS@gov.ns.ca
