The Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA), Ontario’s car insurance regulator, approved rate changes for only one insurer in July 2021.
Here are the rate changes approved by FSRA in July 2021:
|Insurer||Rate Increase or Decrease %||Market Share||Effective Renewal Date|
|Sonnet Insurance Company||+0.96%||0.008%||July 17, 2021|
The July numbers show, on average, the overall impact on the Ontario auto insurance market based on insurer market share is a weighted average rate change of 0% in July 2021. This rate change has had a very nominal impact on the overall market.
As the pandemic situation continues to improve in the province, auto insurance rate hikes are likely to increase in the coming months as more and more drivers are increasing their driving frequency. Several Ontarians are now commuting almost daily for work/school, with several places now re-opening and the economy slowly but surely bouncing back. However, many auto insurers are still offering their policyholders different forms of financial relief due to the COVID-19 impact.
