CDIC’s Mandate

  • CDIC’s Statutory Objects are to:

    • Provide insurance.

    • Contribute to the stability of the financial system.

    • Promote standards of sound business and financial practices.

    • Do so in a manner that would minimize CDIC’s exposure to loss.

    • For the benefit of depositors.

Supporting CDIC’s Mandate

  • Why public awareness is so important?

  • Most Canadians do not know or fully appreciate

  • the value of deposit insurance.

    • Confusion exists as to what is insured and lack of awareness and misunderstanding about deposit insurance amount to risks.

    • Many Canadians believe in the invincibility of the financial system and the major banks.

    • Deposit insurance is not a concern to depositors, it is an expectation, a blind trust.

Supporting CDIC’s Mandate

  • As experience shows, there is always the potential for a member institution to fail and, given this reality, the risks of not informing Canadians about deposit insurance are high.

  • The risks of not adequately informing the public are:

    • Financial

    • Regulatory

    • Political

    • Reputation

  • If we did nothing, CDIC would be subject to criticisms should an institution fail.

Supporting CDIC’s Mandate

  • How public awareness fits with CDIC’s mandate to promote and contribute to the stability of the financial system:

    • Communicating the relevant details of deposit insurance to Canadians is a means to fulfill this mandate.

    • Informed financial consumers are better equipped to make financial decisions based on their needs and priorities.

    • Financial consumers who make decisions that are right for them contribute to the stability of the financial system. They are more secure in face of financial fluctuations and uncertainties.

Supporting CDIC’s Mandate

Public Awareness and Canada’s Federal Deposit Insurance System:

“Experience has shown that the characteristics of a deposit insurance system need to be publicized so that its credibility can be maintained and strengthened.”

(Report of the Financial Stability orum’s

Working Group on Deposit Insurance)

The public needs to know and understand both the benefits and limitations of a DIS.

Effective Communications

  • Elements of effective communications:

    • Clearly defined objectives

    • Tailor messages, activities and tactics to “lowest common denominator”.

    • Reflect important “local” factors in the program.

    • Ensure your activities are open and transparent.

    • Challenge others to support your objectives. Be prepared for resistance.

CDIC

Effective Communications

  • Assess your public environment to define your public awareness objectives. Find out:

    • Know your audiences. Who knows about deposit insurance? What do they know about it? How important is it to them? How do they get their financial information? Get to know the people you want to reach.

    • What is the correlation between certain characteristics (e.g. demographics, Religion, Urban and Rural) and level of knowledge?

    • Identify 3rd Party Stakeholders.

CDIC

Effective Communications

  • Public opinion surveys enable you to:

    • Identify knowledge gaps within your public environment.

    • Segment the population into meaningful groupings – target audiences.

    • Set statistical targets for public awareness efforts.

    • Assess where you are achieving positive results – and where you need to introduce improvements.

  • The findings cannot be transferred to another context. The environment of every deposit insurance system is distinct – and must be studied and understood before a program can be truly effective.

CDIC

Effective Communications

  • Focus groups do not generate statistics, but they can enhance your public awareness effort.

    • Focus groups go beyond numbers.

    • They probe and build insight into why people say what they do.

    • The freely expressed sentiments and reactions of participants speak volumes.

  • Focus group participants in Canada have told us clearly that depositors, CDIC and financial institutions all have a responsibility for public awareness.

  • They also told us that financial institutions should assume primary responsibility for awareness of deposit insurance… and why that is.

  • However,although the public expects their financial institutions to provide accurate and timely info about deposit insurance, experience shows otherwise FI’s do not share that view.

Effective Communications

  • To create a public awareness program for the benefit of depositors:

    • Respect the role of the deposit insurance system. Ask yourself, “Who is the system designed to protect?”

    • Apply the findings of your research to your messages, activities and approach. Know the effectiveness of you delivery channels.

    • Take into account the full context of the financial system.

    • Plan your program so it can remain relevant and responsive to trends and events.

    • To inform consumers about the benefits and limitations of deposit insurance (e.g. limits of coverage, what is and is not insured); and

    • To increase public awareness of the federal deposit insurance system.

  • Making the Campaign Stronger – According to what we find from surveys, focus groups, target audiences and experience, the campaign is monitored and directions adjusted. In year four, we are:

    • Developing a new television commercial to focus on reducing the number of depositors who incorrectly believe mutual funds are insured.

    • Increasing emphasis on public education through partnerships.

    • Strengthening public awareness work with member institutions through discussions and enhancements to the Deposit Insurance Information By-law.
