Membership Information

For Distribution to Relevant Parties within your Firm

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

In light of concerns with respect to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to remind Members of their obligations with respect to business continuity planning under MFDA Rule 2.9 (Internal Controls) as well as the guidance set out in MFDA Staff Notice MSN-0056 Business Continuity Planning.

MSN-0056 provides guidance regarding the establishment and maintenance of appropriate business continuity arrangements so that Members may ensure that they are adequately prepared to minimize business disruptions in a variety of potential crisis situations, including an outbreak of a widespread disease, and are able to continue service to clients or resume operations within an acceptable period of time.

Please contact your compliance manager or Membership Services if you have any questions or concerns, or in the event of a significant business disruption that results in an inability to properly service clients or meet regulatory requirements.

Membership Services may be reached at 1-888-466-6332 (Option 1) or membershipservices@mfda.ca.
