CDIC consults on changes to joint and trust account disclosure requirements

OTTAWA – July 20, 2018 – The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) today launched a consultation for public comment on proposed changes to requirements for deposits in joint and trust accounts. The consultation process will assist the CDIC in reshaping its Joint and Trust Account Disclosure By-Law (JTDB).

On June 21, 2018, the Budget Implementation Act 2018, No. 1 received Royal Assent. It includes changes to the CDIC Act to modernize and enhance Canada's deposit insurance framework. Key amendments will affect insurance coverage and requirements for trust deposits when they come into force.

The JTDB is the first by-law affected by the changes to the CDIC Act on which we are seeking feedback. In the coming months, CDIC member institutions and key stakeholders will be consulted to provide comments on proposed amendments to other by-laws.
