Episode 82: CRA Tips: Less is More - Perfecting Your CRA File by Cutting the Clutter

As most of you know, the public file is a straightforward requirement of the CRA. Its purpose is to disclose basic information about your bank, its products and services, and how you serve the community. The file includes a wide variety of information, and here I discuss the technical requirements, what not to include, and recommendations around best practices.

Tips include putting together a checklist so you don’t miss any necessary requirements. I also go over additional information you should make available to the public, the two typical versions of a public file, how to handle requests for copies of your public file, and how to cut down on unnecessary clutter.
