To ensure that the Insurance Council Rules continue to provide an effective regulatory framework for the oversight of insurance licensees and their business practices, we are conducting a comprehensive review of the Rules. We will be engaging our licensees and stakeholders as a part of this multi-year initiative.
Under the Financial Institution Act Regulations, proposed changes to Insurance Council Rules are subject to public consultation. As a part of the consultation process for each group of proposed rule changes, the following will be made available to the licensees, the public and other stakeholders:
This information for each group of rule changes will be made available as they are confirmed for consultation by the voting members of Council.
Feedback on proposed rule changes will be collected and provided to the voting members of Council, and ultimately to the Minister of Finance, should the rule changes be submitted for her approval.
Rules are being reviewed based on strategic priority and regulatory impact. Since the start of the initiative, updates to the following Council rules have been brought forward:

Status: Public consultation for 8 different rule amendment topics and review by voting Council complete. A package of amended rules has been submitted for ministerial approval and received consent from the Minister of Finance.

Planning is underway and effective dates and details for rule amendments will be communicated in advance as information becomes available.
