Who is FCAA

  • Who is FCAA

    Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA) protects consumer and public interests and supports economic well-being through responsive marketplace regulation. We protect Saskatchewan consumers by regulating financial products and service providers in an effective, efficient and balanced manner.

    FCAA plays an essential role in the growth, development and strength of our economy. The FCAA’s regulatory functions include both prudential and market conduct regulation. Prudential regulation addresses the financial soundness of those regulated, while market conduct regulation refers to supervising compliance related to consumer protection provisions including disclosure, confidentiality, fair practices and prohibited methods of doing business.

    Financial services regulation is important for the integrity, efficiency and transparency of the financial services sector. The fall-out of the 2008 market turmoil provides ample evidence that a stable marketplace resultant of effective regulation is necessary to ensuring a secure economic infrastructure.

    With the addition of the Consumer Protection Division in 2011, FCAA has broadened its focus to promoting an environment in which all Saskatchewan consumers and businesses can be confident.

    The mandate of FCAA is to oversee the protection of consumer interests through licensing, registration, audit, complaint handling and enforcement activities pursuant to various provincial statutes.
