Section 2.2.4

Can I register as an insider, an issuer representative and an agent?

Generally, yes. However, you must select the category that best suits your activity. For example, if you are a reporting insider and you will only be filing insider reports for yourself, you should register as an “insider”.

If you fulfill multiple roles, you must register as an agent. For example, you would register as an agent if you will be filing:

  • insider information for one or more reporting insiders other than yourself
  • issuer information for more than one issuer
  • insider and issuer information for yourself, several insiders and an issuer

Please see questions 2.1.4 to 2.1.7.

As An Agent, How Do I Access Each Of My Client’S Filings?

You will need to have each client’s access key.

An access key is a unique case-sensitive alpha-numeric code issued by SEDI or the SEDI operator to an insider or SEDI issuer that has filed an insider profile or issuer profile supplement on SEDI. If you set up a client’s insider profile or issuer profile supplement, SEDI will give you their access key. If someone else sets up the client’s profile information, you will need to request the access key from your client.

Do I, As The Agent For A Reporting Insider, Have To File A Power Of Attorney For Insider Reports Filed On SEDI?

No. However, if you, as an agent, are filing an insider report in paper format in certain circumstances (see question 4.3.7), you still need to file with the relevant securities regulatory authority a power of attorney. However, an agent does not need to file a power of attorney for an insider report of an individual that is filed in paper format under the temporary hardship exemption.
