Sales of Short-term Securities to non-residents of Canada (BP-30A)
For Information onlyThis is an electronic survey example for information purposes only. This is not a working questionnaire.
The series on international transactions in securities cover portfolio transactions in stocks, bonds, and money market securities between non-residents and residents of Canada.
The securities statistics cover issuances and holdings of financial negotiable instruments. Securities include debt instruments designed to be traded in financial markets, such as treasury bills, commercial paper and bonds, as well as equity instruments, such as listed shares. The statistics relate to outstanding amounts (stocks) and net transactions (new issues net of redemptions).
This survey is intended to cover sales of short-term securities (with original term to maturity of one year or less) by residents of Canada to non-residents for inclusion in the official estimates of the Canadian balance of payments. The guiding principle in completing the questionnaire is whether there has been a change in ownership between residents of Canada and non-residents.
For the purposes of this survey the following transactions are considered to be transactions with non-residents:
(a) transactions in short-term securities executed in Canada for the accounts of non-residents;
(b) transactions in short-term securities executed outside Canada for your own account or for the accounts of clients resident in Canada.
Your information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes.
