The Financial Services Commission of Ontario and the Financial Services Tribunal
The Financial Services Commission of Ontario regulates the insurance sector; pension plans; loan and trust companies; credit unions and caisses populaires; the mortgage brokering sector; co-operative corporations in Ontario; and service providers who invoice auto insurers for statutory accident benefits claims. The Financial Services Tribunal adjudicates over regulatory hearings relating to professionals regulated by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario. Effective advocacy before the Financial Services Tribunal requires experience and a thorough understanding of the regulatory framework at the Financial Services Commission of Ontario and the Financial Services Tribunal. It also requires working effectively with Tribunal adjudicators, mediators, and investigators who are highly specialized. Clients have a right to fairness which involves some degree of input in decision-making and the right to an impartial and independent decision maker. The importance of achieving success at the Financial Services Tribunal cannot be overstated as the opportunity to have a decision reversed by a court is limited.
