The Prompt Offering Prospectus (POP), introduced by the OSC in 1983, is a streamlined reporting and registration system for large companies that issue securities regularly. Because the OSC has an extensive file of information on these companies, only a short prospectus is required when securities are issued. In the early 1990s, securities regulators in Canada and the SEC in the U.S. introduced a Multi-Jurisdictional Disclosure System (MJDS). Under MJDS, large issuers in the two countries are allowed to issue securities in both countries under disclosure documents satisfactory to regulators in the home country. 20.3
