OSFI revised the instruction guide and form related to filing the Replicating Portfolio Information Summary. The instruction guide is intended to assist administrators of pension plans in completing the Replicating Portfolio Information Summary. An administrator or its agent must file the Replicating Portfolio Information Summary if a pension plan has defined benefit provisions; is registered or has filed an application for registration under the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 (PBSA); and uses a replicating portfolio approach as an alternative settlement method for solvency valuation purposes.
OSFI expects the Replicating Portfolio Information Summary to be submitted with any actuarial report required to be filed. An actuarial report must generally be filed within six months after the end of the plan year to which it relates. An actuarial report may also be filed at other intervals or times. The administrator must file the Replicating Portfolio Information Summary using the Regulatory Reporting System or RRS. The guide does not supersede the requirements of PBSA, the Pension Benefits Standards Regulations, 1985, the Directives of the Superintendent pursuant to the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 (the Directives), or any guidelines that OSFI has issued or may issue regarding the administration of pension plans subject to the PBSA.
