Statistical Information

The participating insurance regulators across Canada have the authority under their respective insurance legislation to collect statistics from licensed insurers. Statistics are collected in a standardized format as identified in the Statistical Plan manuals and reporting templates as approved by regulators.
There are two mandatory statistical plans, as well as financial information collected by GISA:

Automobile experience data is collected to provide premium and claim information, which is used to develop and support fair automobile insurance rates. The statistical and financial data collected support the following public policy objectives:

Automobile insurance experience is published in a series of exhibits and reports which are compiled from data that has been collected from all licensed automobile insurers by GISA and contains experience for all participating jurisdictions.


Note: The collection of Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Statistical Plan (OSABSP) data was discontinued at the end of 2012. Insurers operating in Ontario were required to report statistics for automobile insurance accident benefits coverage, which was at a greater level of detail than the statistics captured under the ASP.
