FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY REGULATION PROGRAM - VOTE 1204

The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) regulates insurance companies, pension plans, credit unions, caisses populaires, mortgage brokers, agents and administrators, loan and trust companies, and co-operative organizations. FSCO also makes recommendations to the Minister on matters affecting the regulated sectors. FSCO is also responsible for the administration of the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund (MVACF) which compensates persons injured in automobile accidents in Ontario where there is no other insurance available to respond to the claim. FSCO is also responsible for the administration of the Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (PBGF). The PBGF pays a minimum level of pension benefits if a plan is wound up with insufficient assets. FSCO works with consumers, industry stakeholders and investors to protect the public interest, enhance public confidence, and create a business climate that promotes Ontarios domestic and international competitiveness.
