Financial Consum​er Agency of Canada Act

This act establishes the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), sets out our mandate and identifies the legislative requirements we are responsible for in other federal acts. Read the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada Act.

Acts governing federally regulated entities (REs)

FCAC is responsible for administering sections designated as “consumer provisions” in the Bank Act, the Insurance Companies Act, the Trust and Loan Companies Act, the Cooperative Credit Associations Act, and the Green Shield Canada Act. The Agency is also responsible for administering the Payment Card Networks Act and its regulations.
