 Referring a motion by Councillor Mihevc from the June 3, 4 and 5, 1998, Council meeting, and recommending that:

 (1)Toronto City Council urge the federal government to enact legislation to ensure that Canadian financial institutions remain accountable to consumer, small business and community interests, for example:

 (a)require banks to disclose the number of loan applications, as well as approvals and rejections, categorized by size of loan, size, type and location of business and gender of the business owner, to track the demand for capital and whether banks are meeting the demand;

(b)require banks to disclose reasons for rejections, loan defaults, loan losses and the number of called loans, to track the risk of lending to different sectors, communities and regions;

(c)require other deposit-taking financial institutions to collect and disclose similar statistics to ensure a level playing field;

 (2)Toronto City Council urge the federal government to also enact requirements to determine how well financial institutions are serving consumers by requiring each institution to disclose:

 (a)the number of complaints received each year, and the rate of resolving complaints;

(b)the number of lawsuits initiated by customers against the institution, and the number won, lost or settled;

 (4)Toronto City Council support establishment of incentives for financial institutions to encourage them to improve their performance, including:

 (a)as Ontario has done, federal and provincial governments should consider imposing a surtax on financial institutions, combined with a tax credit that could be applied to the surtax based on the institution's performance in meeting community needs;

(b)as Ontario has done, governments should not contract out business to financial institutions that fail to serve community needs;

(c)as in the U.S., the federal government should deny applications to expand or merge by financial institutions with a failing grade;

 (5)Toronto City Council urge the federal government to require banks and other financial institutions to:

 (a)fund a truly independent ombudsman with the power to make binding rulings;

(b)guarantee everyone living in Canada an account with a deposit-taking financial institution, including the option or a low-cost, no-frills account, and protection from arbitrary and excessive holding of cheques; and

(c)facilitate the startup of a Financial Consumer Organization (FCO) by enclosing the FCO's flyer periodically in their customer mailings.
