Securities Law & Instruments

Headnote

Issuer deemed to have ceased to be a reporting issuer. Issuer has less than 15 security holders in Ontario holding less than 2% of the outstanding securities of the issuer. Issuer is a reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta, and security holders will therefore continue to have access to continuous disclosure information about the issuer via SEDAR.
