The Top Navigation Tool Bar identifies major sections of the web site. Your current location is always underlined so that, at all times, you know exactly where you are within the web site. [See SITE HELP in the toolbar above.] This tool bar also provides immediate access to the other sections of the site:
Left Navigation Toolbar
The Left Navigation Toolbar identifies and provides access to sub-sections in three areas: NEW FILINGS, ABOUT SEDAR and SITE HELP.

The button identifying your current location is always highlighted at the top of the bar. You can reach any other sub-section by clicking on the appropriate button.
Bottom Navigation Toolbar
The bottom navigation toolbar provides you with opportunities to move from page to page within the site. Buttons on this toolbar give you immediate access to the Home page, Back to the previous page, on to the Next page or to the Site Map.
