SEDAR – Canadian Securities Database

SEDAR “is the official site that provides access to most public securities documents and information filed by public companies and investment funds with the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA).” (Think EDGAR for the Northern Territories).

The site has two primary features. The first is the searchable database of filings. When searching public companies, enter a company name, industry, document type, and/or date of filing. Once the search is executed, the result list appears with hyperlinks to the documents. For investments, options are the fund name, filing date and/or document type.

The second feature is the company profiles. Again, there is separate list for public companies and investment funds. Public company information can include contact information, phone numbers, date of formation, jurisdiction, CUSIP number, stock exchange, auditor, general partner, and transfer agent. For investment funds, information can include fund manager, address, principal, and regulator. Profiles can also be accessed by following the hyperlink under the company or fund name in a filings search.
