Notice - Filing of 2019 Annual Return for Ontario
December 23, 2019
Pursuant to Section 102 of the Insurance Act (Ontario), all Ontario insurers are required to file annual returns for the year ended on October 31, 2019 or December 31, 2019, with the Chief Executive Officer of Financial Services, or his or her designate. Section 447 of the Insurance Act provides penalties for those insurers who do not comply with the filing requirements.
Detailed information is available on the Annual Returns and Instructions page of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario website at www.fsrao.ca. You will find updates regarding:
Required forms are also available for download:

Helpful resources on updated forms and instructions are also available on The Office of Superintendent of Financial Institution's web-site.
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. Where Auditors' Reports are referenced, we require both the Auditors' Report addressed to the primary regulator and the Auditors' Report to the shareholders/policyholders together with the audited financial statements.
If the company intends to change its licence status (i.e. discontinuing, withdrawing or merging) the Licensing Approvals Unit should be contacted at LicensingApprovals@fsrao.ca, and if appropriate, adjustments will be made to the 2019 Preliminary Assessment.
All Section 102 filings should be filed with FSRA by February 28, 2020. Please forward your electronic documents to email@example.com.
If you have any issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Antonella.Cefaratti@fsrao.ca.
Please note: If you are a regulated licensee/registrant, regardless of whether or not you subscribe to e-communications, you will automatically receive important information from FSRA via the e-mail address you have provided. More importantly, as a regulated licensee/registrant, you will not be able to unsubscribe from these important email communications.
