OSFI has set out the near-term priorities for federally regulated financial institutions and federally regulated private pension plans for the coming months until March 31, 2022. The key focus areas include implementation of the internationally agreed Basel III reforms, finalization of capital and liquidity guidance for small and medium-size banks, and issuance of guidance and consultations on climate risk, operational resilience, technology and cyber risk, and culture risk.

In the first quarter of 2022, OSFI plans to publish draft of revised guideline on third-party risk, an industry letter on advanced analytics and model risk, and a consultative document on culture and reputation risk. OSFI intends to publish a discussion paper and draft guideline on the assurance of capital, leverage, and liquidity returns in the second and fourth quarters of 2021, respectively, with the publication of the final guideline on assurance of capital, leverage, and liquidity returns expected in the first quarter of 2022. Then, in the second quarter of 2021, OSFI plans to publish:

- advisory regarding implementation of the disclosure requirements on global systemically important bank (G-SIB) indicators in Canada.

- proposal for future climate risk initiatives and summarize the feedback received on climate risk discussion paper that was issued in the first quarter of 2021.
- consultation on integrating into OSFI guidance the new BCBS Principles for Sound Management of Operational Risk and the Principles for Operational Resilience.
