National Registration Database
The MFDA reminds Members that the National Registration Database (“NRD”) is scheduled for
launch on March 31, 2003. NRD will be used in all jurisdictions of Canada except Quebec.

NRD was developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators and has been mandated by
Multilateral Instrument 31-102 National Registration Database. This multilateral instrument
requires all registrants, including Members of the MFDA, to submit registration applications and
renewals electronically through the NRD and that fees in respect of registration are paid through
NRD. We encourage all MFDA Members who have not yet enrolled in NRD to do so

The following information resources may be of interest to MFDA Members:

• The Canadian Securities Administrators have issued CSA Notice 31-307 National
Registration Database (NRD) and NRD Enrolment and User Fees which describes the
enrolment process and fee schedule.
• There is a dedicated NRD Office web-site that contains information for registrants:
• There is a CDS NRD Helpdesk call center: 1-800-219-5381.
• The regulators have dedicated contacts: at the Ontario Securities Commission, Eric
Pelletier (416-593-8913); and at the B.C. Securities Commission, Gayle Carlson and
Ross McLennan (604-899-6500).

MFDA Members are reminded that they are responsible for ensuring compliance with the new
legal requirements relating to their registration with securities regulatory authorities.
