Car insurance in Belleville

In Canada, auto insurance is mandatory for drivers who want to get on the road. It's set up this way so that anyone impacted by a car accident can be financially protected. This is especially important for victims of car accidents who shouldn't have to face financial hardship due to medical and rehabilitation costs.

If drivers get behind the wheel without insurance, they could be subject to a maximum fine of $25,000 for their first conviction and a maximum fine of $50,000 for their second one.

In Belleville and other cities in Ontario, car insurance is regulated by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA). Their job is to ensure the proposed insurance rate changes are as fair as possible. They also require that all agents and businesses that sell auto insurance be licensed and follow a set of guidelines.
