The Government of Ontario recently launched an online survey as part of its Putting Drivers First consultation to get perspectives from consumers and businesses on how to make auto insurance more accessible and affordable in the province. The survey is part of a broader movement to modernize auto insurance in Ontario.

Gore Mutual supports the Ontario government’s effort to hear consumers’ opinions and encourages everyone to participate in the survey. It only takes a few minutes to complete and you can share your views until February 15 here.

“We are happy to see the government reaching out to understand consumer needs and are hopeful that this information can have a meaningful impact on automobile insurance that will benefit everyone,” said Danielle Glendinning, Director of Personal Insurance at Gore Mutual. “This survey is a starting point to drive positive change, and I encourage consumers to take the time to provide their feedback to the government to have their voices heard.”

    While I understand the need for change in the industry to return auto insurance to a profitable line of business, it is difficult to watch some of the ways the insurance companies are using to achieve this goal ie blank applications being sent to clients, followed by registered letters, pressure on brokers to drop certain clients with threats of cancelled contracts hanging over our heads etc. It is difficult to write a good risk because good clients get hit and injured by poor drivers and are penalized for having a claim. I think we need a modified “no fault” system. Insurance companies still look after their own insureds but have the right to subrogate against the third party insurer. This might be labor intensive but it would protect the driving records of a good driver.
