The Dominion rate changes

The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario, as a regulator, makes sure insurance companies’ proposed rates are fair and not excessive.

Insurers need approval from the FRSA to change the rates they use to calculate premiums for their customers.

Approved rate changes and effective renewal dates can be found on the company’s website, here.

In the current market, FRSA says that several factors are driving up costs, including inflation and people driving more. Any decreases observed in the effective renewal approvals are mostly below two percent and even lower than one percent.
