In 2017, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued Disclosure Initiative – Principles of Disclosure, seeking feedback on disclosure issues and preliminary proposals to make disclosures in financial statements more effective.

Also in 2017, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) launched a consultation exploring possible ways to reduce the regulatory burden faced by non-investment fund reporting issuers. In 2018, the CSA issued CSA Staff Notice 51-353, Update on CSA Consultation Paper 51-404 Considerations for Reducing Regulatory Burden for Non-Investment Fund Reporting Issuers, which outlines the policy initiatives being undertaken by the CSA in response to the consultation.
