Reporting and Accountability

FSRA is a board-governed regulatory agency accountable to the people of Ontario through the Ontario Ministry of Finance. We are committed to transparency in all aspects of governance, management, administration and operations.

Corporate Reporting

Each year, FSRA is required to submit a business plan to the Minister of Finance. The Annual Business Plan outlines FSRA’s ongoing operations, strategic direction, financial overview and supporting activities, which are aligned to its vision. The plan has been approved by the Minister of Finance and addresses the expectations outlined by the Minister in the mandate letter.

As part of FSRA’s commitment to transparency and accountability, the agency consulted members of the public in fall 2020 to help inform its plan. The Annual Business Plan reflects FSRA’s expectations of continuing progress for the next three years, with a focus on 2021-2022 activities:

Members of both the public, and industries we govern, can find documents related to our accountability below. These are offered in compliance with the Agencies and Appointments Directive.

Service Standards Scorecard

Service standards are essential to good public service. They reflect a pursuit of a measurable level of performance, which stakeholders can expect under normal conditions. By creating effective service standards, FSRA will be able to use the quarterly results to improve its public service. FSRA intends to publish results approximately 30 days following the end of the quarter. These timelines may be longer due to internal reporting requirements.
