The following forms must be completed and submitted through the
Autorité des marchés financiers’ (AMF) website, using AMF’s E-Services:

https://lautorite.qc.ca/en/professionals/e-services/

The following instructions and links were updated on February 14, 2018.

The Annual Statement on Market Conduct was introduced in 2017 by the Canadian Council of Insurance Regulators (CCIR), in order for the insurance regulators across Canada to receive detailed information about the marketplace and insurers' practices.
The requirement to complete and file the information collected through the Annual Statement is based on the authority of each of the provincial and territorial insurance regulators to collect such information from insurers within their jurisdiction.

The Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) is the designated service provider for all CCIR regulators, and Alberta has signed an agreement with the AMF to act as the Service Provider. Therefore, the AMF collects the Annual Statement in the name of all regulators. For information on the CCIR, please visit the CCIR website.

The following forms are available on the Autorité des marchés financiers’ (AMF) website. The filing of the Annual Statement must be done through AMF's E-Services.

Please note: the pdf forms provided below are for reference only. An insurer filing the Annual Statement must download the Excel template from the AMF's E-Services and submit to the AMF.

Bulletins, Notices and Enforcement Activities

OSFI Guidelines adopted by Alberta

Guidelines for Provincially Regulated Insurance Entities

In accordance with section 792.1 of the Insurance Act, the Superintendent of Insurance has adopted and issued the following Guidelines of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI Guidelines), including future revisions, for these entities (collectively known as “provincially regulated insurance entities”):

  • provincially incorporated Property and Casualty Insurers, Life Insurers and Reciprocal Insurance Exchanges, either formed under the Insurance Act, or who have transferred to Alberta such that Alberta is their primary regulator.

Apart from differences due to law and unless otherwise stated, the Superintendent of Insurance has adopted and issued these Guidelines, including revisions thereto, in full. The Superintendent intends to apply the OSFI Guidelines with appropriate discretion having regard to the size, risk, complexity and structure of each provincially regulated insurance entity. The Superintendent of Insurance may, with appropriate discretion, require extra-provincial incorporated entities licensed to operate in Alberta to comply with the OSFI Guidelines.

Superintendent of Insurance Supervisory Framework

The Superintendent of Insurance supervises and regulates provincially regulated insurance entities to determine whether they are:

  • in sound financial condition
  • complying with legislative requirements, guidelines and supervisory expectations

To accomplish this, the Superintendent of Insurance uses a risk-based Supervisory Framework to identify imprudent or unsafe business practices within the insurance industry and intervenes on a timely basis, as required.
