See below links of the announcements from the following institutions concerning the National Day of Mourning.
ISDA’s current understanding is that the normal operation of OTC derivatives in Canada appears to be largely unaffected, therefore we do not intend to issue detailed guidance at this time.  However, members’ attention is drawn to:

  1. the change to the ‘last trading day’ of the September 2022 Three-Month Canadian Bankers’ Acceptance Futures Contract (BAX) to Friday September 16, 2022 (as detailed in the notice linked below), which will likely affect dates that are defined by reference to the “IMM CAD” definition in the 2021 ISDA Interest Rate Derivatives Definitions.
  2. the Bank of Canada’s postponement of bond auctions originally scheduled for 19th September (detailed in the notice linked below). Members should check the terms of their transactions to determine any consequences caused by such postponement.

If members are aware of any facts or issues which could materially impact such normal operation, they should contact mdemarzio@isda.org and mhurd@isda.org.
