BMI View:

Canada's insurance market is highly developed, with users availing themselves of a wide rangeof products and insurance solutions. Though mature and relatively consolidated, we forecast robust growthin premiums across both the life and non-life market segments in local currency terms through the forecastperiod to 2020. Our outlook reflects a relatively robust macroeconomic backdrop and a favourableenvironment for businesses and consumers, supported by low interest rates and steady growth in GDP. Thatsaid, the potential for a prolonged downturn in global energy and commodities markets presents an elementof downside risk to our forecasts. While the maturity of Canada's insurance sector has created high barriersto entry, we expect existing multinationals to continue to look for ways to strengthen their footprint throughmergers and acquisitions over the coming quarters. This is particularly likely in the non-life segment, whichis more fragmented than the life market.

Key Updates And Forecasts


- In August 2016, a report from the C.D. Howe Institute highlighted the potential risk to Canadian insurersposed by a major earthquake in the country, the claims resulting from which would exceed the financialcapacity of the sector. The report stated that Canada's property and casualty insurers were capable ofhandling claims of up to CAD30bn, after which one or more national insurers would fail. The reportfollows reports of significant damage incurred by the Fort McMurray wildfires in May 2016, which wereestimated to have caused about USD6.9bn worth of damage. The catastrophe is expected to lead to aspike in claims and payouts for local insurers.
