Form 40-F.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget this request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.

Form 40-F (17 CFR 249.240f) is used by certain Canadian issuers to register a class of securities pursuant to Section 12(b) or (g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”)(15 U.S.C. 78 l) or as an annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78m(a) or 78o(d)). The information required in the Form 40-F is used by investors in making investment decisions with respect to the securities of such Canadian companies. We estimate that Form 40-F takes approximately 429.93 hours per response and is filed by approximately 160 respondents. We estimate that 25% of the 429.93 hours per response (107.48 hours) is prepared by the issuer for a total reporting burden of 17,197 (107.48 hours per response × 160 responses).

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.

The public may view the background documentation for this information collection at the following Web site, . Comments should be directed to: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, or by sending an email to:; and (ii) Pamela Dyson, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or send an email to: Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.
