Auto insurance in Ontario: What’s covered?
If you drive in Ontario, you’re required to have at least the mandatory minimum insurance coverage:
If you have an at-fault accident, you can be sued for property damage or hurting someone. Covers court awards, out-of-court settlements and legal fees. Minimum $200,000 coverage. We recommend $2M.
Covers medical costs beyond government health plans. Includes rehab, attendant care, and lost income due to missing work. Also covers the cost of a substitute caregiver for your kids or elderly parent.
If another driver is at fault for an accident, direct compensation – property damage (DCPD) coverage pays to repair your vehicle, with no deductible. Also covers any stuff in your vehicle and a rental car.
If you get in a car accident with a driver who doesn’t have insurance, uninsured automobile coverage allows you to recover damages in court or out-of-court as if they did. It also covers hit-and-runs.
Auto insurance in Ontario: Optional coverages
We strongly recommend the following coverages:
Collision coverage pays to repair or replace your car after an accident. For a small additional premium, loss of use coverage pays for a rental while your car’s in the shop.
Comprehensive coverage pays to repair or replace your vehicle if it’s stolen or damaged by fire, vandalism, extreme weather, or flying debris on the road.
Increased coverage limits
Increase your limits for liability and/or accident benefits for medical, rehabilitation, attendant care, income replacement, death and funeral benefits.

How to save on car insurance and other things you should know about auto coverage in Ontario.
How much is car insurance in Ontario?
Ontario drivers pay an average of $1,500 to $2,000 annually for auto insurance–at least 50% more than other Canadians. Claims costs are also higher. Rates vary significantly by city, with averages as low as $1,000 in Kingston, Napanee, and Belleville, and climbing to $2,500 in some regions in the Greater Toronto Area.
How can I improve my driving record to save on insurance?
Having a good driving record makes a big difference when it comes to your insurance rates. Create safe practices like checking travel routes in advance and adjusting your driving for weather conditions. If you get a speeding ticket or have an at-fault accident, we’ll make sure it doesn’t stay on your driving record forever.
Why do some cars cost more to insure than others?
Here are some reasons why certain cars are cheaper to insure than others:
- How well the car protects you in an accident
- Safety features that may prevent accidents
- How often that type of vehicle is stolen
- Cost of car repairs/replacement
Is there a seniors discount for car insurance?
Yes! A lot of insurance companies give huge discounts to seniors. If you’re over 55, we can probably help you reduce your rates.
Can I get a car insurance quote without a car?
You’ll need the year, make and model of the vehicle you want to buy for an accurate quote. If you’re car shopping and trying to decide between different makes and models, call us and we’ll get you a quote for each of them. But keep in mind that you can’t actually get insurance until you show proof of ownership.
Can car insurance prices change daily?
No, not in Ontario. Every insurance company that sells car insurance in Ontario needs to get approval from the provincial regulator, FSRA, whenever they want to change their rates. To steer clear of unpleasant rate increases on renewal, avoid tickets and at-fault accidents, make payments on time and always provide accurate info to your broker and insurance company.
