The legislative framework in the FSRA Act provides FSRA with specific rule-making authorities under the regulated sector statutes and the FSRA Act, including the authority to make rules governing fees and other charges. By delegating rule-making authority to FSRA, the Legislature empowers FSRA to use its expertise to create and implement principles-based rules, giving FSRA additional flexibility to respond to market and/or product changes.

The rule-making process includes a mandatory consultation period during which stakeholders are encouraged to comment and provide feedback on the proposed new rule or change. Proposed rules will be posted on this page. Subscribe to our mailing list to be notified of consultations and other FSRA news.
