The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) is a new, independent regulatory agency created to improve consumer and pension plan beneficiary protections in Ontario.

When operational, FSRA will be an innovative, flexible, self-funded regulator capable of responding to the dynamic pace of change in marketplace, industry and consumer expectations. It will regulate many sectors that are important to Ontario consumers and pension plan beneficiaries:

  • property and casualty insurance
  • life and health insurance
  • credit unions and caisses populaires
  • loan and trust companies
  • mortgage brokers
  • health service providers (related to auto insurance), and
  • pension plan administrators.

At this time FSRA is establishing its organization and developing a transition plan to assume regulatory functions currently under the auspices of other agencies. For inquiries relating to current regulatory matters, please contact the appropriate agency.
