OSFI, in a letter to the federally regulated Canadian and branches of foreign Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance companies, announced the changes that were made to the Canadian Council of Insurance Regulators (CCIR) regulatory forms and instructions. Changes were made to Section V (Jurisdictional Requirements) and Section VI (Detailed Instructions) of the P&C instructions, along with the P&C Quarterly Return (1Q) that will be effective from the first quarter of 2019.
No changes were made to the P&C Annual Supplement (1A) and the P&C Quarterly Return (1Q) that are effective from the fourth quarter of 2018. A detailed summary of all changes can be found under Section VIII of the instructions. The announcement urges filers to file a copy of the annual Business Plan (OSFI-640) via the Regulatory Reporting System (RRS) no later than 60 days after the fiscal year-end. The Business Plan should include a forecast of the Balance Sheet and the Minimum Capital Test/Branch Adequacy of Assets Test, as at year-end 2019, along with the Income Statement for 2019. Filers are requested to include any related narrative you believe would help OSFI to better understand the plans for 2019.
