Prepare to file the 2013 Annual Information Return (AIR)
File the 2013 AIR between January 20 and March 31, 2014
Log in to Licensing Link to complete and submit the online form in English. If you require the form in French, please contact FSCO at 1-800-668-0128 (toll-free) or (416) 250-7250.
The 2013 AIR must be submitted by March 31, 2014
Mortgage administrators that fail to submit the AIR by March 31, 2014 may be required to pay an administrative monetary penalty of $1,000. Non-compliance increases FSCO’s regulatory costs and impacts the fees that all licensees pay.
Even if the administrator did not do any business in 2013, the mortgage administrator is still required by law to file the 2013 AIR.
If the mortgage administrator did not do any business in 2013, does not have any trust account and does not have any plans to continue the mortgage administration activities, the mortgage administrator can apply to surrender the mortgage administrator licence, subject to Superintendent’s approval. For more information, please contact FSCO by email at elicence@FSCO.gov.on.ca.
Filing the AIR is a mandatory legal requirement
The AIR is designed to collect information from mortgage administrators about their business practices, internal controls and market conditions. The information will be used to assist the FSCO in its risk assessment and oversight of mortgage administrators. The reporting period is January 1 to December 31, 2013.
Electronic filing (e-filing) of the AIR is mandatory in accordance with the Superintendent's Rule governing the filing of the AIR.
