Workspace Usage

As mentioned in the subscriber update of January 6, 1998, CDS INC. (SEDAR) began charging for workspace usage as of February 1, 1998.

We would like to remind our subscribers that total workspace usage exceeding 5 MB will incur charges daily. This charge is calculated on overall workspace usage as at 11pm of each day, not upon the individual files' time held in the workspace.

Refer to section 9.5, step 4 of the SEDAR Filer User's Guide, release 5.0 for procedures on how to delete or retrieve files to your local directory.

Tips: To keep your charges to a minimum you should retrieve large files from your workspace or delete them after filing. When a file is retrieved through the SEDAR "Receive Files" function, it is removed from the workspace. When a file is attached to the SEDAR cover page from the workspace, and submitted as part of an electronic filing, a copy of that file is transferred to the SEDAR server, but the original file remains in your workspace.

Each SEDAR userid has its own workspace. If SEDAR has been installed on more then one computer, you should check each workspace for files. It is a good idea to ask the sender to inform you of the size of the file and notify you once the file was successfully transferred to your workspace.
