GMF publishes a consultation paper on a proposed fee for failing to settle GoC securities

The Government of Canada Market Functioning Steering Group (GMF) published a consultation paper and an FAQ document today on a proposed fee for failing to settle GoC bond and bill transactions.

GMF was established by the Canadian Fixed-Income Forum in January 2020 to develop a framework for supporting GoC market functioning in a low-rate environment.  The proposed fail fee forms part of this framework.

GMF is seeking feedback on the proposed fee’s structure and governance from a broad array of stakeholders that are active participants in the GoC securities market. Responses to the consultation, using the attached template, are requested by by December 9, 2022.
