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

Since the IFRS 17 return and instruction versions were posted on OSFI’s website back in April 2021, additional changes are listed as part of the Development Items and Rationale document posted on OSFI’s website. Minor changes were also made to Section V (Jurisdictional Requirements) of the new MI instructions effective for 2023. Note that no changes are being introduced to any of the MI Quarterly or Annual Returns for Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.

The forms and instructions can be viewed on OSFI’s Web site. A summary of the changes can be found under Section VI of the instructions.

Effective Q4 2023 OSFI will be decommissioning the existing UCLRE return and replacing it with the new PC5 return. The PC5 return will now be subject to late and erroneous filing penalties.
