The EMDA is undertaking a review of the
Exempt Market Product Exam administered by
the IFSE Institute (EMP Exam) and we want your
input. The purpose of the review is to evaluate
how successful the EMP Exam has been in
meeting the needs of exempt market dealer
professionals across Canada.
The EMDA review will gather feedback from
individuals who have taken the EMP Exam and
seek input from prep course providers, various
Canadian securities regulatory authorities
and other interested persons. We welcome
your feedback and your ideas for how the
EMP Exam could be updated and made more
relevant to today’s exempt market.

known securities industry financial and
regulatory reporting specialist.

exciting and valuable course that is long
overdue. We look forward to establishing
a curriculum with input from CFOs of
EMDs and Canadian securities regulators
so it is practical and useful to the industry.
We believe a certificate is important and
should recognize the work completed by
EMD CFOs at this special course.”
Stephen Warden of parker simone

regular conference calls with EMDA
CFOs following the course and to form a
working financial advisory committee to
discuss common issues and concerns.
