REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS STATEMENT

(This statement is not part of the By-law.)

Background

Pursuant to paragraphs 11(2)(f.1) and (f.2) of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Act (CDIC Act), the Board of Directors of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is authorized to make by-laws respecting the information that the CDIC can require from member institutions with respect to their deposit liabilities, as well as the time and manner in which it is to be provided, and respecting the capabilities that the CDIC can require member institutions to have, including the capability to identify their deposit liabilities and temporarily prevent withdrawals of deposit liabilities, all with a view to facilitating the Corporation’s exercise of its functions under section 14 of the CDIC Act or in the event that an order is made under subsection 39.13(1) of the CDIC Act. The CDIC Board of Directors made the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Data and System Requirements By-law (By-law) on December 8, 2010, pursuant to this authority. The By-law requires member institutions to implement a method of identifying, capturing, organizing, and producing deposit liability data with the objective to ensure that in the event of failure, the member institution has certain data readily available and organized properly to allow the CDIC to undertake a resolution. The By-law was previously amended on March 5, 2015.

Issues

The proposed By-law Amending the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Data and System Requirements By-law (Amending By-law) will facilitate the update and implementation of technical specifications that reflect the enhanced coverage framework by delinking the technical specifications from the By-law. Technical amendments are also needed to align the By-law with the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Differential Premiums By-law to clarify that an attestation surrounding compliance in all material respects must be provided within 30 days following a request by the Corporation, to clarify the need for member institutions to have appropriate policies and procedures in place to ensure By-law compliance, and to clarify that members must be capable of explaining any instances where a data extract is inconsistent with the member institution’s records. Further amendments address unique situations that are currently not covered in the By-law, such as amalgamations and assumption of deposit liabilities, and which result in compliance issues for member institutions.

Objectives

The Amending By-law will provide greater clarity to member institutions on the applicable requirements and provide greater flexibility to the Corporation and member institutions to facilitate compliance in the context of the enhanced coverage framework.

Description

The table below provides a description of the proposed amendments.

Amending By-law Section

By-law Section

Explanation

1, 2

1(1), 2(1) and 2(2)

To repeal the definitions of "Data Requirements" and "standardized data," and to reorganize certain sections of the By-law so that the Data Requirements would no longer be incorporated by reference.

2

2(3)

Amendments formalize the current practice that member institutions develop and implement policies and procedures that ensure compliance with the By-law.

2

3

Amendments clarify the information that must be provided to the Corporation upon request.

2

4

Amendments reflect that member institutions must certify compliance in all material respects with the By-law within 30 days after a request by the Corporation as opposed to annually as part of the Return of Insured Deposits.

2

5(1), (2) and (3)

Amendments reflect that a member institution is required to provide the Corporation with a plan to become compliant with the By-law not later than 30 days after it becomes a member institution, and that it must comply with the By-law as soon as feasible but no later than 18 months after the day on which it becomes a member institution. Amendments also require such a plan where a member institution amalgamates with another institution or where a member institution assumes deposit liabilities of another institution.

“One-for-One” Rule

The “One-for-One” Rule does not apply to this proposal, as there is no change in administrative costs to business.

Small business lens

The small business lens does not apply to this proposal, as there are no costs to small business.

Alternatives

There are no available alternatives. The amendments must be done by way of by-law.

Consultation

The proposed amendments do not significantly impact member institutions and provide member institutions with a necessary and appropriate degree of flexibility and additional clarity. Therefore, only consultation by way of prepublication in the Canada Gazette, Part I, is necessary.

Rationale

The proposed Amending By-law will ensure the By-law is clear, flexible and enforceable. The Amending By-law would achieve the stated objective and address the identified issues. The Amending By-law would not impose any additional regulatory costs or administrative burden on industry.

Implementation, enforcement and service standards

The proposed Amending By-law would come into force on the day on which it is registered. There are no compliance or enforcement issues.
