14 The Impact of an Earthquake in Canada The Good News 20% Filled knowledge gap Un-modeled risks not as bad Risk mitigation works 14

15 Most concerning Major earthquake dwarfs other Nat Cats Most Canadians not prepared What if it s a bigger quake? 15

16 Research on model for addressing financial impact Key Findings Internationally, there are 5 models for government participation and risk-sharing Penetration rates vary across all models, suggesting that other factors are also at play in determining EQ insurance take-up Price is typically too high and EQ risk is typically perceived to be too remote (even in high-risk areas) Perception that government will provide financial relief and bail out to affected EQ victims, even for those without any EQ insurance EQ coverage is typically lower where government has no financial role Research on model for addressing financial impact Key Findings Continuum of possible risk-sharing models Gov nt Role Extent of Intervention/Contribution EQ Coverage Primary Insurer Reinsurer of Last Resort Backstop Liquidity Provider Guarantor No Role in Insurance Provides insurance directly and responds to claims Protects insurance sector through reinsurance facility Pre-arranged contingent loan facility for insurers incurring extraordinary pay-out burdens Guarantees that any pool or fund for catastrophic risks will meet all of its obligations Disaster relief only Spain: high New Zealand: high France: high Japan: low Australia: high France: high Canada: low Italy: low * Low coverage in Japan mainly due to cultural reasons and social expectations of government bail out 16
