REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS STATEMENT

(This statement is not part of the By-law.)

Background

The Board of Directors of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) made the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Differential Premiums By-law (By-law) on March 3, 1999, pursuant to subsection 21(2) and paragraph 11(2)(g) of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Act (CDIC Act). Subsection 21(2) of the CDIC Act authorizes the CDIC Board of Directors to make by-laws establishing a system of classifying member institutions into different categories, setting out the criteria or factors the CDIC will consider in classifying members into categories, establishing the procedures the CDIC will follow in classifying members, and fixing the amount of, or providing a manner of determining the amount of, the annual premium applicable to each category. The CDIC Board of Directors amended the By-law on January 12 and December 6, 2000, July 26, 2001, March 7, 2002, March 3, 2004, February 9 and April 15, 2005, February 8 and December 6, 2006, December 3, 2008, December 2, 2009, December 8, 2010, December 7, 2011, December 5, 2012, December 4, 2013, April 22, 2015, February 4 and December 7, 2016, December 6, 2017, December 5, 2018, and March 6, 2019.

Issues

The CDIC annually reviews the By-law to confirm it is technically up to date. As a result, technical amendments are proposed to the By-law Amending the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Differential Premiums By-law (the Amending By-law). Furthermore, the By-law has been reviewed to eliminate redundancies. The Amending By-law primarily targets the following two main issues:

1. Changes to the Reporting Form

The amendments align the By-law with the changes in the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) forms that are referenced in the By-law. Furthermore, the amendments seek to remove redundancies in the Reporting Form where formulas are found elsewhere in the By-law or correspond to OSFI data points found in the Reporting Manual. It also removes the scoring grids from the Reporting Form, as they are contained in other parts of the By-law.

2. Clarification to and simplification of existing requirements

The amendments correct the calculation of the score in a situation where there is no examiner’s rating component and simplifies the calculation of the capital adequacy score component. Amendments also clarify that if the Corporation adjusts the Reporting Form, it will use the adjusted Reporting Form when assigning scores under other sections of the By-law.

The tables below provide more detail about the amendments proposed in the Amending By-law.

“One-for-One” Rule

Small business lens

The small business lens does not apply to this proposal, as there are no costs to small business.

Alternatives

There are no available alternatives. The amendments must be done by way of by-law.

Consultation

Rationale

The proposed Amending By-law will ensure the By-law remains technically up to date, will achieve the stated objective, and addresses the identified issues. The Amending By-law would not impose any additional regulatory costs or administrative burden on industry.
