Legislation, Regulations and Rules

As the province’s financial and consumer services regulator, we administer several statutes and regulations. The legislative framework in the Financial and Consumer Services Commission Act (FCNB Act), and in many other Acts we administer, provides FCNB with specific rule-making authorities, including the authority to make rules governing fees and other charges. Using our expertise, we create and implement rules that provide us additional flexibility to respond to market and/or product changes. The rule-making process includes a mandatory consultation period during which stakeholders are encouraged to comment and provide feedback on the proposed new rule or change. Visit this page to find proposed rules and changes out for comment. Once in force, rules are legally binding, the same as Acts and Regulations.

The following table outlines FCNB’s regulatory framework:
