    The System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) was developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) to facilitate the following:

    1. Electronic filing of securities information (prospectuses, continuous disclosure documents, etc.) and the payment electronically of filing fees as required by the CSA;
    2. Public dissemination of securities information collected in the securities filing process; and
    3. Electronic communication between electronic filers, filing agents and the CSA.

    The SEDAR rules consist of:

    1. National Instrument 13-101 -- System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) (NI 13-101) adopted by the CSA, sets out general rules relating to electronic filing of certain documents with the CSA using SEDAR.
    2. Multilateral Instrument 13-102 -- System fees for SEDAR and NRD (MI 13-102) sets out the system fees payable to CSA, largely in connection with specified filings.
    3. The SEDAR Filer Manual published by the CSA sets out certain standards, procedures and guidelines for preparing electronic format documents and making electronic filings using SEDAR. The SEDAR Filer Manual contains a number of SEDAR Forms which may have to be completed by electronic filers or their filing agents to facilitate electronic filing on SEDAR.
