Rises in healthcare costs, the elderly population, international tourism and awareness of health insurance drove Canada's personal accident and health segment during the review period (2009-2013). The segment's gross written premium rose at a review-period compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8%. The segment is dominated by health insurance, which held 93.0% of the gross written premium in 2013.

Key Highlights

  • Healthcare financing in Canada is a mix of public and private participation.
  • Canada has a large aged population. With the proportion of the population aged 65 and older rising, it is expected to generate higher demand for health insurance.
  • Health insurance accounted for the largest share of 55.3%, followed by the personal accident insurance with 43.8% of the overall personal accident and health insurance segment in Canada in 2013.
  • Despite the global financial crisis and weak economic development in Canada, travel insurance was the segment's fastest-growing category during the review period, with a CAGR of 12.9%.
  • The low penetration of personal accident and health insurance, which stood at 1.3% in 2013, indicates a potential opportunity for private insurers.
