How do I know if a company is a public company in Ontario?


In general, a “reporting issuer” is a corporation that has issued securities to the public. Check the OSC’s Reporting Issuer List to see if a company is currently a reporting issuer (or publicly traded company) in Ontario. If you believe a company is a reporting issuer in Ontario but do not see it listed, contact us.

Reporting issuers are subject to continuous disclosure requirements under Ontario securities law. That means they must file their disclosure documents on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR). These documents include financial statements, material change reports and prospectuses.
