    AMF, the financial regulator of Quebec, sets out key initiatives in the 2022-2023 annual statement of priorities, which forms a part of the implementation of the AMF’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.

    • Prioritize the actions to take with respect to the recommendations from its report on the responsible use of artificial intelligence in finance.
    • Incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into financial activities and decisions, which include developing a framework for climate-related disclosures; using scenario analysis and stress testing within financial institutions for physical risks and transition risks; and reflecting on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion within financial institutions.
    • Develop and implement a governance framework and a data management strategy across the organization.
    • Enhance integrated risk management to facilitate the identification of priority issues and improve processes.
    • Help maintain a framework for effective action with its provincial and territorial counterparts and federal regulators in Canada to promote cooperation and enhanced information-sharing.
    • Enhance compliance tools and processes and work together with stakeholders to identify opportunities to optimize the compliance burden.
