The 2019 Annual Information Return (AIR) is now open – File before March 31!

The 2019 Annual Information Return (AIR) is now open! The AIR is an annual questionnaire designed to collect specific information from service providers licensed by FSRA. It must be filed electronically, and may only be completed by the Principal Representative. You have until March 31, 2020 to complete your 2019 AIR online and submit your regulatory fee.

FSRA has reduced the time it takes for you to complete the AIR. As part of our burden reduction efforts, we have eliminated 30% of the questions compared to past AIRs, making it easier and saving you time!

To avoid a financial penalty, all licensed service providers are required to submit their AIR and regulatory fee by March 31, 2020. This includes those who did not conduct any business in 2019 but still held a service provider licence at December 31, 2019.
