As a result of the discussions with stakeholders in the pension community and the recommendations in the final report of the Ontario Expert Commission, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) made a commitment to improve its pension regulatory services.
In 2009, FSCO established a framework to carry out its commitment for enhancing its pension regulatory services, communications with pension stakeholders and broadening stakeholder engagement in pension initiatives and projects. In 2010, FSCO completed some of its most important goals and made significant progress on others.
The 2011 Report summarizes FSCO's achievements over the past year, discusses the issues our stakeholders brought to our attention and how we responded, and looks ahead to challenges we are likely to face. Information on the 2009 report and the 2010 report is also available.
Stakeholder engagement - Consultations with Pension Stakeholders
FSCO also committed to broadening its communication with pension stakeholders. Since 2009, FSCO has been consulting with specialists in the pension community, as well as with the public on various initiatives that it will be undertaking in the administration of the Pension Benefits Act and the regulations. These specialists will include experts from FSCO’s professional advisory committees, pension associations and organizations, and groups and individuals who are vitally interested in the regulation and promotion of registered pension plans. The public will include pension plan members.
NOTE: Consultation documents, updates, stakeholder submissions and related materials are available at FSCO's Stakeholder Consultations.
