About FICOM Commission

The commission exercises powers and carries out duties assigned to it under the FIA relating to the regulation and supervision of provincially licensed insurance companies, trust companies and credit unions. Through the exercise of FIA and CUIA powers, the commission makes major regulatory decisions regarding incorporations, business authorizations, amalgamations, liquidations and windups.

The Commission provides oversight and direction to the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, an individual also appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The Commission can delegate certain powers of its own to the Superintendent but must then oversee the use of that delegation. The Superintendent holds certain powers under the FIA that are separate and apart from those held by the Commission.

Instrument of Delegation (last reviewed April 8, 2015)

The Commission makes certain decisions regarding the operations of CUDIC, a statutory corporation with distinct responsibilities relative to FICOM. Members appointed to the Commission also serve as CUDIC Directors. The Commission makes decisions regarding fund augmentation, assessments and methodology, fund size and impairment. The Commission also oversees public awareness activities relating to the deposit insurance guarantee.
