Stablecoin Regulations for Exchanges and Issuers are Clarified by the Canadian Regulatory Authority.


Stablecoin trading and issuance requirements have been established by the umbrella group for Canadian securities regulators.

With a focus on stablecoins, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) has offered guidelines to exchanges and cryptocurrency issuers on its interim approach to what it refers to as value-referenced crypto assets.


Various cryptocurrencies that reference the value of a single fiat currency may be traded, subject to specific restrictions and limitations, according to a clarification published on October 5 by the umbrella body of Canada’s provincial and territory securities authorities.

The CSA reiterated in February that stablecoins “may constitute securities and/or derivatives,” which Canadian cryptocurrency exchanges are not allowed to trade.

But if issuers have a sufficient reserve of assets with a licensed custodian and stablecoin-offering crypto exchanges make “certain information related to governance, operations, and reserve of assets publicly available,” the CSA might permit trading in those assets.


Stan Magidson, CEO of the Alberta Securities Commission and Chair of the CSA, issued the following statement:

“This interim framework, which we will build upon in the future, sets certain standards to help ensure that investors receive the information they need about the assets they are purchasing, including the risks associated with them.”

The CSA issued a warning, stating that even fiat-backed crypto assets that meet the requirements are dangerous and should not be seen as endorsed or risk-free.

The CSA provided instructions on staking in July, indicating that it was permitted but that there were few lending opportunities and that the percentage of “illiquid” assets must not exceed a certain level.

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.

Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
