The rapid rise of the ride-sharing economy is causing big changes to auto insurance in Canada. Many new Uber drivers are looking for car insurance and it is creating a shift in the industry.
We don’t believe in “one size fits all” car insurance — we offer a range of personal auto insurance options to best suit your specific needs.
Everyone will use their personal vehicle differently. Some people will use a vehicle for commuting or other business needs, while others will only use it for daily errands and trips. We can help you find the coverage that fits your usage.

Frequently Asked Questions | Personal Auto Insurance
Why is personal auto insurance important in Canada?
Personal auto insurance is important because it protects you if you accidentally cause damage to other vehicles or property, or if you injure other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians.
Personal auto insurance is also required by law across Canada. As a driver in Ontario, you are legally responsible for being insured against your liability. You should always carry a copy of your auto insurance policy in your vehicle.
What type of personal auto insurance do I need in Ontario?
Every driver in Ontario is legally required to carry a minimum amount of personal auto insurance to cover his or her liability. Read this article for more information on the legal requirements for drivers in Ontario.
Even if you carry the minimum amount, you may need more coverage to appropriately protect yourself and your vehicle. There are many types of coverage available for personal car insurance, including liability coverage, collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, accident benefits, transportation replacement, and more. To find out what coverage or optional rating is right for you, contact our team of auto insurance experts today.
In addition, if you have a specific type of vehicle like an antique or classic car, you may want to purchase specialized insurance to cover the specific needs of your vehicle. The same is true of motorcycles and other recreational vehicles.
Here are a few of the specific insurance products that we offer for different types of vehicles:
How much coverage for personal auto insurance do I need in Ontario?
In Ontario, the mandatory auto coverage is $200,000 for third-party liability and weekly income replacement benefits of 70% of your gross income (up to $400/week). For more information on mandatory and optional coverage for auto policies, you can read on our blog on auto legislation changes in Ontario.
Although carrying the mandatory coverage is important for drivers in Ontario, this basic coverage may not be sufficient to properly protect you and your vehicle. For example, we will often recommend that you increase your liability coverage of $200,000 to $1 million or $2 million to cover the possibility of catastrophic injuries.
The best way to find out how much personal auto insurance you need is to contact our insurance team for a consultation. Our specialists will take the time to gain a complete picture of your lifestyle and your auto insurance needs, so we can match you with the right plan.
