Canada Bank Regulator Seeks Climate Stress Testing, Capital Review

  • Canada bank regulator OSFI publishes draft climate change guidelines, calls for climate scenario modelling to be incorporated into stress testing
  • Federally regulated institutions "should have processes in place to adequately price climate risk-sensitive assets and liabilities and manage these exposures"
  • Draft rules may be expanded later but for now don't appear to set new capital requirements, saying institutions "should consider its capital requirements under severe, yet plausible, climate-related scenarios, and climate-related risks that could materialize beyond the... standard capital planning horizon"
  • Banks must also make more climate disclosures, a move the federal government sought earlier
