Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions
The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions will make its semi-annual
Domestic Stability Buffer (DSB) level-setting announcement on
June 23, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. (ET).
OSFI reviews and sets the level of the Domestic Stability Buffer on a semi-annual basis (June and December), based on its ongoing monitoring of federally regulated financial institutions as well as system-wide and sectoral developments.
OSFI may adjust the buffer in between scheduled review dates if circumstances require. For example, OSFI
reduced the DSB on March 13, 2020 as part of its response to the COVID-19 situation, to support banks’ continued lending to consumers and businesses.
Following the DSB announcement, OSFI officials will be available to
financial analysts by teleconference at
10:00 a.m. (ET) to respond to technical questions.
