The Filing Information for Insurers Licensed in Ontario details the forms and reports required by Ontario.  We request that the 2020 annual returns be delivered in an electronic copy format (pdf, excel, ASCII file) as applicable versus a paper format as part of our process improvement measures.  Please note the insurer number on each document filed. 

Please note that February 28, 2021 is the deadline to file your annual return with the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA).  April 17, 2021 is the deadline for reinsurers.

FSRA does not require any paper filings to be submitted.  You are required to file your Life-1 or P&C-1 filing in ASCII format.  Please forward your electronic documents to [email protected] by the due dates noted above. 

If the company intends to change its licence status (i.e. discontinuing, withdrawing or merging) the Licensing Approvals Unit should be contacted at [email protected], and if appropriate, adjustments will be made to the 2020 Preliminary Assessment.

If you have any questions, please contact the Information Analyst Team at [email protected].
