These types of company documents have become increasingly accessible with the advent of the Internet. Most companies have a corporate website with a section entitled "Investor Relations", which should have a wide range of company documentation, including quarterly and annual reports.



In the United States, all companies filing with the SEC must supply their documentation to a service known as EDGAR, or the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval System. The EDGAR website allows you to get all the filings of a company, including its prospectus and annual reports, which include financial statements.



Canada has a similar website known as SEDAR, or System for Electronic Documentation Analysis and Retrieval, which provides company filings on the web. Like EDGAR, the SEDAR website provides easy access to public company documentation.
