Having the right auto insurance coverage is essential for everyone who relies on a car to get around. But this peace of mind comes at a cost.

Everyone who wants to drive a car in Ontario must, by law, buy a minimum amount of insurance. In Ontario, over 140 private insurance companies offer auto insurance to customers and compete on the basis of price, coverage and service.

In addition to the minimum amount of insurance required by law, Ontarians have the option of buying more coverage to suit their needs. When Ontarians are involved in accidents, insurance companies help them get well, support them if they are unable to work and protect them financially if they hurt someone else and are sued for it.
