Supervision framework .: FC5-46/2017E-PDF

"The mandate of the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) includes supervising federally regulated financial institutions, payment card network operators and external complaint bodies (regulated entities). FCAC has further advanced its regulatory approach to be proactive, transparent, proportionate and accountable by being open-minded, forward-thinking and clear about its expectations for the entities it regulates. This document illustrates FCAC’s vision for robust and effective oversight to ensure Canadians continue to benefit from the financial consumer protection framework put in place by the Government of Canada. It summarizes FCAC’s legislative mandate as well as its supervisory roles and responsibilities. It describes the entities that FCAC regulates, their obligations and the roles of various other stakeholders. Finally, this document explains the activities and tools that FCAC leverages to fulfill its supervisory mandate. The Supervision Framework updates and replaces FCAC’s Compliance Framework. Although the core activities governing its supervisory approach remain consistent, FCAC has incorporated numerous enhancements and this document provides a clearer overview of that approach"--Preface, p. III.
