Detailed information is available on the Annual Returns and Instructions page of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario website at

The Filing Information for Insurers Licensed in Ontario details the forms and reports required by Ontario. We request that the 2019 annual returns be delivered in an electronic copy format (pdf, excel, ASCII file) as applicable versus a paper format as part of our process improvement measures. Please note the insurer number on each document filed.

Please note that February 28, 2020 is the deadline to file your annual return with the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA). April 17, 2020 is the deadline for reinsurers.

FSRA does not require any paper filings to be submitted. You are required to file your Life-1 or P&C-1 filing in ASCII format. Please forward your electronic documents to by the due dates noted above.

If the company intends to change its licence status (i.e. discontinuing, withdrawing or merging) the Licensing Approvals Unit should be contacted at, and if appropriate, adjustments will be made to the 2019 Preliminary Assessment.

If you have any issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (416) 226-7959 or
