Ontario’s no-fault auto insurance system

If you reside in Ontario, then you should know about the "no-fault" car insurance system, which means that if you are injured or your car suffers from damages, then you will have to deal with your own insurance company, no matter who is at fault for the collision. You do not have to go after the at-fault driver for compensation.

If you are legally responsible for an accident, then you are also legally responsible for all the damages. If you are uninsured, you’ll be charged with driving without insurance, and you may be fined.

Your driver's license can also be suspended until you repay the amount owing. This makes it important to ensure that you have adequate auto insurance coverage that protects you and your loved ones in the event of an accident. Compare the best car insurance quotes instantly.

Customizing your car insurance coverage

Apart from securing the coverage you require, it is always up to you to decide what additional coverage you want to add to your policy. The car insurance calculator can show you rates for your chosen coverage, helping you get the custom coverage you desire!

You can change your car insurance coverage for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • When you move
  • When you get married
  • When you purchase a new vehicle
  • When you add a new driver (spouse, G1/G2 driver)
  • When you remove a driver
  • When you retire
  • When you change your job
