Description of the objective

The Budget Implementation Act, 2021, No.1, which received Royal Assent on June 29, 2021, introduced legislative amendments that strengthened Canada’s resolution regime, and provided CDIC with a by-law making authority to require certain federal member institutions to ensure that certain provisions of the CDIC Act apply to certain eligible financial contracts.

The Eligible Financial Contracts By-law will set out which portions of the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation Act will apply to certain eligible financial contracts and the timelines for implementation.

Federal member institutions will have to amend their eligible financial contracts in accordance with the timelines setout in the by-law.

Public consultation opportunities

CDIC issued targeted consultations with the industry in April 2019. The by-law will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, in December 2021 for a 30-day comment period.
