Changes to Auto Insurance in Ontario Tue, Jul 17, 2012

IMPORTANT NOTICE GIVING YOU MORE CHOICE - On September 1, 2010, important changes allowed you to customize the Accident Benefits portion of your Ontario Automobile policy. This enables you to make choices that suit your needs, on the benefits you purchase which may influence the price you pay for insurance. The reforms and new choices are effective September 1, 2010. If your policy renews before September 1, 2010, your benefits will remain unchanged until your next renewal. After September 1, 2010, however, you may choose to make changes to your policy prior to its renewal. As these changes impact your policy, take the time to review the documents your insurer will be including with your renewal.
