Thank you for your interest in FSRA’s Proposed Credit Union Recovery Planning Guidance. The request for submissions is now closed.

FSRA consulted with stakeholders between January 27, 2021 and March 19, 2021.


FSRA is releasing final Recovery Planning Guidance to help credit unions increase their resiliency. Recovery plans equip credit unions with strategies to use in the event of a crisis.

The new Guidance sets out the principles of effective recovery planning. It also describes how FSRA will assess the quality of risk management and credibility of recovery options.

The Guidance comes into effect on July 5, 2021. Credit unions have until January 13, 2023 to submit their final plans. FSRA is asking for interim submissions with key elements of the plans by January 14, 2022, so feedback can be provided before the 2023 deadline.

Consultation feedback

Based on Consultation feedback, the Guidance now includes a phase in period. The phase in period gives credit unions more time to work with FSRA before submitting their final plans in 2023.

FSRA will also consider proportionality when assessing whether credit unions are adhering to the principles set out in the Interpretation.
