T+1 Information and Tools


The CCMA and the organizations it works with prepare and share material to help advance a smooth transition to T+1, should the U.S. capital markets proceed with their proposed move to a shorter standard settlement cycle.  Examples include white papers, submissions, surveys, checklists, and so on.  Below is Canadian information, followed by links to U.S. T+1 material, as well as links to CCMA T+2 resources that also may be useful.
