Ontario Auto Insurance Law

For drivers to be properly insured in the province of Ontario, they must carry the following forms of coverage at all times: Property Damage, Uninsured Motorist, Third Party Liability, and Accident Benefits coverage.

Drivers will receive a pink card, or Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance card, as proof of the required insurance coverage that is effective anywhere in either Canada or the United States. This has to be given to police officers upon request, and also must be shown to register new automobiles or to renew license plates every year.

Ontario's No-Fault Insurance

While Ontario has a no-fault insurance system, this does not mean that no one is at fault in a car accident. By law, insurance providers must determine who was at fault even providing a percentage of fault for each driver. Fault Determination Rules provide the guidelines by which the insurance companies assign fault to each driver. Laid out by the Insurance Act, the Fault Determination Rules allow for quick resolution of claims by insurance providers. However, the rules do not encompass any violations of driving laws as found in the Highway Traffic Act.
