Annual reports

The Superintendent of Insurance annual reports contain a summary of insurance business in Alberta for the year, summary of licences issued under the Insurance Act, statistical review, list of insurance companies licensed in Alberta and abstracts of returns.

Note: The Annual Report is not intended to provide an in-depth analysis of insurers’ profitability. Rather, the report provides a general insight into the health of insurance industry in Alberta.

  • Additional information about insurers’ profitability is provided for federally-registered insurers by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions on its website, and for provincially-registered insurers by their respective provincial supervisor.
  • Alberta’s can be found on this page: Insurance companies in Alberta.
  • Additional information on the profitability of auto insurers operating in Alberta can be requested, at a cost, from the General Insurance Statistical Agency.

As part of its oversight of the insurance industry, the Superintendent of Insurance ensures that insurance companies incorporated in Alberta are in good financial standing and well-positioned to fulfill obligations to claimants.

Annual statements of provincial companies are included in the annual reports for 2000 to 2007. For 2008 onward, see available financial data.
