GOVERNMENT NOTICES

BANK OF CANADA

PAYMENT CLEARING AND SETTLEMENT ACT

Notice of designation to LCH.Clearnet Limited

Under subsection 4(1) of the Payment Clearing and Settlement Act (the “Act”), where the Governor of the Bank of Canada is of the opinion that a clearing and settlement system may be operated in such a manner as to pose systemic risk, the Governor may, if the Minister of Finance is of the opinion that it is in the public interest to do so, designate the clearing and settlement system as a system that is subject to Part Ⅰ of the Act.

LCH.Clearnet Limited (LCH) clears and acts as a central counterparty for over-the-counter interest rate derivatives across several currencies, including the Canadian dollar. LCH’s clearing and settlement system, SwapClear, is eligible to be designated under the Act, since it has at least three participants (at least one of which is a Canadian participant and at least one of which has its head office in a jurisdiction other than the head office jurisdiction of LCH) and clearing and settlement is partly in Canadian dollars.

I am of the opinion that SwapClear may be operated in such a manner as to pose systemic risk and therefore should be designated as subject to Part Ⅰ of the Act. The Minister of Finance is of the opinion that it would be in the public interest to designate SwapClear.

Accordingly, SwapClear is hereby designated pursuant to subsection 4(1) of the Act, effective the 2nd day of April, 2013.
