Generally, all Canadian banks, bank holding companies, and federally regulated trust and loan companies are required to comply with the Basel Capital Adequacy Requirements (“BCAR”). Branches of foreign banks are exempt from this reporting requirement. BCAR calculates the capital to risk-based asset ratio and asset-to-capital multiple of the reporting institution and is required to be filed with the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (“OFSI”) on a quarterly basis. There are two broad methodologies available for calculating the capital requirements – the standardized and the internal ratings based (“IRB”) approaches. Prior approval from OFSI is required in order to use IRB.
BCAR calculations can be very complex as they require accessing multiple data sources along with complex calculations in order to complete all of the necessary BCAR requirements.
