Aggregate fee requirement by region in 2018

The 2018 aggregate fee requirement for each region is as follows:

British Columbia and Alberta 
In the British Columbia and Alberta region, the aggregate fee requirement is $169 million, which is the same amount as in 2017. This region is in a negative financial position and the fees include a catch up component aimed at returning, in a measured manner over a number of years, to a fully funded position. The 2018 catch up is lower than that of the previous year.

Ontario
In the Ontario region, the aggregate fee requirement is $351.1 million, which is less than the $383.5 million in 2017. This region is also in a negative financial position and the fees include a catch up component but the 2018 catch up is lower than that of 2017.

Québec 
In the Québec region, medical liability protection costs have remained relatively stable and the region is in a positive funded position. As a result, the CMPA has reduced fees in this region with the 2018 requirement of $56.0 million being 9.4% less than in 2017.

Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Atlantic provinces and Territories
In the Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Atlantic provinces and Territories region, the aggregate fee requirement is $56.1 million, which is 9.4% more than in 2017. This region’s assets exceed the forecast liabilities and the fee increase has been muted by allocating some of the assets to the fee requirement.
