In Alberta, the Alberta Insurance Rate Board (AIRB) regulates auto insurance rating programs. AIRB makes rate changes publicly available and publishes them on a quarterly basis. We keep track of the approved changes from each of the last four quarters (one year) to help you keep an eye on the latest Alberta auto insurance rate trends.
Quickly and easily view each company's approved rate changes for the last year with the RATESDOTCA Alberta Auto insurance Rate Tracker.
With a “full filing” the insurance company is required to send more detailed information, such as actuarial data to support the required rate changes. A full filing is required when there are things like rate changes and underwriting changes being implemented.
With a “simplified filing” the insurance company isn’t required to provide as much information, as long as there has been a “full filing” submitted to AIRB within the last three years and the rate increase being applied for is not over 5%.

Standard car insurance policies are one year long. If your renewal date is approaching, remember that comparing car insurance rates is the best way to save money – you never know how much you’ll save until you comparison shop. Another great time to look for a new car insurance policy is when you buy a new vehicle or move to a new neighbourhood.
