Pursuant to subsection 40 (2) of the Act, the Superintendent provided CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC. with the opportunity to make written submissions, which were to be received by the Superintendent’s delegate on or before April 12, 2019. CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC. did not provide a written submission by the deadline.
Therefore, pursuant to subsection 40(1) of the Act and subsection 15(1) of Ontario Regulation 193/08, the Superintendent orders a summary administrative penalty against CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC.
A summary administrative penalty of $2,000 is imposed on CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC..

CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC. must pay the administrative penalty no later than 30 days after the date of the invoice.
If CLARITY MORTGAGE ADMINISTRATION INC. fails to pay the administrative penalty in accordance with the terms of this Order, the Superintendent may file the Order with the Superior Court of Justice and the Order may be enforced as if it were an order of the court. An administrative penalty that is not paid in accordance with the terms of an order imposing the penalty is a debt due to the Crown and is enforceable as such.
