III. Investment Strategies Disclosure
CSA Staff Notice 81-334 ESG-Related Investment Fund Disclosure [Part G Guidance]
Part G Guidance
Section (b)

Use of multiple ESG strategies

Funds that use multiple ESG strategies are required to provide disclosure explaining how the different ESG strategies are applied during the investment selection process. In staff’s view, this disclosure should include the order in which the strategies are applied, if the strategies are not applied simultaneously. For example, a fund that uses negative screening as an initial filter on the fund’s investment universe and then uses an ESG integration strategy to evaluate the potential investments should disclose this in its prospectus.
