On January 11, 2021, Superintendent Jeremy Rudin of the Of­fice of the Su­per­in­ten­dent of Fi­nan­cial In­sti­tu­tions (OSFI) spoke at this conference and made his remarks entitled “Passion, Persistence and Effective Regulation and Supervision”.

As part of his remarks, Mr. Rubin stated that Canada’s banking regulator will not yet consider lifting restrictions on banks’ dividends and share buybacks introduced at the start of the pandemic, even though the largest lenders continue to amass growing stockpiles of surplus capital. As parts of the country move into deeper phases of lockdown, he said he is waiting to see “a clear path to a durable recovery” and less “economic uncertainty” before considering any changes.
