This is to advise you of the changes that were made to the Canadian Council of Insurance Regulators (CCIR) regulatory forms and instructions.

With the implementation of IFRS 17 effective Q1 2023, the existing MI Quarterly (MI1) and Annual Supplement (MI2) returns will be decommissioned.  New IFRS 17 return versions were created, in consultation with the industry, and were posted back in April 2021.

The new forms and instructions can be viewed on OSFI’s Web site at www.osfi-bsif.gc.ca under Regulatory Data and Returns > Filing Financial Returns > (Insurance Companies > 2023 IFRS 17 Insurance Returns) or (Canadian Mortgage Insurance Companies > Manual of Reporting Forms and Instructions). A summary of the changes can be found under Section VI of the instructions.
