Firstly, it saves time and money by allowing companies to electronically file securities information, such as prospectuses and continuous disclosure documents, and make associated payments in electronic form. Secondly, it facilitates market efficiency by enabling investors to promptly access securities information found in the public domain. Finally, it speeds up communication between reporting issuers and securities regulators in Canada.
