Thank you for providing your feedback on FSRA’s proposed Risk Based Supervisory Framework Guidance.

We appreciate the comments and questions received to date. Your feedback will help to inform our final guidance.

The request for submissions is now closed.


The Risk Based Supervisory Framework sets out FSRA’s supervisory practices and approach to assessing the risk profile of credit unions.

FSRA’s level and extent of supervision of a credit union under the Risk Based Supervisory Framework will depend on the size, complexity and overall risk profile of the credit union.

FSRA thanks the Technical Advisory Committee for Regulatory and Supervisory Initiatives for their input into the proposed Guidance.


The public consultation period is open from December 13, 2021 to February 4, 2022.

The Desjardins Group, on behalf of the Desjardins Ontario Credit Union (DOCU), is pleased to respond to the request for comment on FSRA’s new Risk Basked Supervisory Framework (RBSF) for credit unions and caisses populaires. Overall, we hold a favourable view of the proposed RBSF. The framework aligns with industry practices, and we appreciate how it supports FSRA’s goal of implementing a principle-based approach to its regulatory and supervisory work. From a credit union’s perspective, it will be our responsibility to demonstrate the strength and effectiveness of our controls, oversight and governance, and the comprehensiveness of our risk management capabilities. Our comments on the proposed RBSF are submitted with the aim of providing constructive feedback to support the achievement of FSRA’s objectives. We continue to appreciate FSRA’s engagement of the sector on such important matters and welcome the opportunity to discuss our comments in greater detail.
