What is Canadian OTC derivative reporting?

Put in effect for dealers from 2014 and non-dealers in 2015, Canadian derivative reporting requires firms to submit daily reports of information relating to their OTC derivative trades.

Firms familiar with Dodd Frank reporting in the US will find similarities between the formats of the two regulations.


What products and asset classes fall under scope?

Canadian OTC derivative reporting covers equity, commodity, FX, interest rate and credit asset classes, with all derivative products under scope.


What information is reported?

Derivative reports include details of counterparties to the trade, execution time, product details, notional amounts, mark to market valuations, transaction price, clearing details (if relevant) and provincial details.


Is a LEI needed for reporting?

Yes, other than individuals, each counterparty to a trade, regardless of whether they have a Canadian OTC reporting obligation or not must have an active Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) used to identify them within the report.


To whom is data reported to?

Canadian derivative reports are submitted to an approved trade repository. Currently the DTCC, CME Group and ICE operate repositories to support report submissions.


Are reports similar across all 13 provinces?

Yes, each province has individually passed the OTC derivative reporting regulation. Within the report formats are indicators for firms to enter provincial details of their entity and counterparties.

What derivative trades are exempt from the regulation?

  • Exchange traded derivatives (ETDs)
  • T+2 physically settled FX spot trades
  • Physical delivered commodity derivative transactions
