The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) is taking steps to better protect consumers by ensuring they have the information they need when dealing with financial services providers.

As a result, FSRA is consulting on proposed guidance for public warning notices.

Public warning notices are intended to curb consumer harm, act as a deterrent to those who carry out unlicensed activities and instill greater confidence in the financial services sectors.

The proposed Guidance explains how and why FSRA issues public warning notices. By consulting publicly, FSRA wants to ensure transparency for consumers and industry.

The consultation period is now open and will close on August 25, 2023.

I am finding an increasing number of clients being sold cheap insurance, without being given disclosure that the premiums are not level and will be increasing, sometimes yearly. I'd like to see a public warning that Life and Health Insurance Consumers check to be clear if the cost of premiums remain level and with no changes if they have a health change.
