Annual Filing Process for Pooled Registered Pension Plan Returns

All  pooled registered pension plan returns that are submitted annually must be filed using the Regulatory Reporting System (RRS). Returns are not considered received at OSFI until the filing process is complete and the returns have been accepted in RRS.

The Manage Corporate Returns User Guide provides instructions for creating and filing returns in RRS to update a plan’s Organizational Profile on page 44.

The Manage Financial Returns User Guide provides instructions for filing returns in RRS via document upload on page 55.

If a plan is not registered to file returns using RRS, it should do so immediately. Pension plan administrators must contact the Bank of Canada, as host of the RRS system, to register for access to the Bank of Canada secure site and the RRS system. For assistance in registering, please contact RRS Support at the Bank of Canada by phone at 1-855-865-8636, or by e-mail at rrs-sdr@bank-banque-canada.ca.
