On March 27, 2020 the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA)
announced a payment deferral
for the fiscal 2020 – 2021 assessment fee as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We also committed to providing 15 days notice before issuing invoices.
FSRA is now providing advance notice that invoices for this year’s assessments will be issued on July 23, 2020.

This year’s FSRA assessment payment covers a 12-months period, compared to last year’s FSRA assessment, which covered the period from June 8, 2019 to March 31, 2020.
The FSRA assessment has been determined based on FSRA Rule 2019 – 001 Assessments and Fees. The fee rule may be found at

Payment is due to FSRA within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Information on the assessment for other services and payment details will be provided along with the invoice and are also available at
