The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) recently revised the Application for Registration of a Pension Plan, Form 1. The updated Form 1 will provide us with additional information related to pension plans and Pension Plan Administrators.
The most significant change to the Form is that only the Pension Plan Administrator within the meaning of section 8 of the Pension Benefits Act, is permitted to sign Form 1. The individual authorized to sign Form 1 by the Pension Plan Administrator, must be the employee/officer/director of the Administrator of the pension plan.
The updated form is available on FSCO's website. The prior version of Form 1 will not be accepted after May 31, 2015.
