  • To ensure that members are provided with the education and guidance they will need (and on a timely basis) to be ready for the implementation of IFRS 17.
  • The mandate is not limited to financial reporting, but should also encompass pricing, capital, enterprise risk management (ERM), asset liability management (ALM) and any other matters that can reasonably be expected to be affected by the implementation of IFRS 17.
  • Guidance will be promulgated by various CIA committees (including the Committee on International Insurance Accounting (IIAC), the Committee on Life Insurance Financial Reporting (CLIFR), the Committee on Property and Casualty Insurance Financial Reporting (PCFRC), and the Committee on Workers’ Compensation (WC)):
    • Steering committee to help identify areas requiring guidance, and to develop a work plan, including deliverables;
    • Steering committee to identify sections of the standards of practice where changes may be needed, and to recommend that the Actuarial Standards Board (ASB) develop such changes as they consider appropriate; and
    • Steering committee to monitor progress and coverage and to take action as needed if any committees are not working to plan (e.g., recommend creation of new task force).
  • To work with other interested parties to understand areas of potential overlap, to recommend alternatives to streamline and reduce duplication, and to identify any gaps.
  • To liaise periodically with our counterparts in other jurisdictions (or as directed by the Board).
  • To provide (brief) written reports to the Board at every Board meeting, and in person from time to time, as requested by the Board.
