Proposed Amendments to MFDA By-law No. 1

On July 25, 2013, the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) published for public comment
proposed amendments to section 1 of MFDA By-law No. 1. The proposed amendments are intended to
bring MFDA By-law No. 1 into conformity with Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (“NFP
Act”) and are a necessary step the MFDA needs to take to ensure its continuance under the NFP Act.
There are no substantive changes to the MFDA’s objectives, governance or operations resulting
from the amendments.

Comments should be made in writing. One copy of each comment letter should be delivered by
October 23, 2013 (within 90 days of the BCSC’s publication of the proposed amendments),
addressed to the attention of Paige Ward, General Counsel & Vice-President, Policy, Mutual Fund
Dealers Association of Canada, 121 King St. West, Suite 1000, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 3T9, and one
copy addressed to the attention of Kate Lioubar, Senior Legal Counsel, British Columbia Securities
Commission, 701 West Georgia Street, P.O. Box 10142, Pacific Centre, Vancouver, British
Columbia, V7Y 1L2.

Those submitting comment letters should be aware that a copy of their comment letter will be made
publicly available on the MFDA website at www.mfda.ca.
