Blanket Orders & Designation Orders

To view exemption orders, please go to exemption orders related to issuers and exemption orders related to registrants.  

Designation Orders

Designation Orders are issued for the purpose of ensuring appropriate treatment of a particular matter that falls within Alberta securities laws. Most Designation Orders are made pursuant to section 10 of the Securities Act (Alberta), however, certain Rules also contemplate the issuance of Designation Orders. Current Designation Orders are listed below and can also be found, where relevant, in the Regulatory Instruments section of this website.
