The problem

Auto Insurance Fraud in Canada

Auto insurance fraud costs Canadians over $2 billion every year. And honest drivers are footing the bill for fraudsters. The shocking stats do not end there…

We have reached a tipping point with respect to the amount of fraud in the auto insurance system. From the multiple ways by which fraud is committed, to the vast array of players gaming the system, and to the government-backed initiatives that have gone uninitiated, one glaring truth emerges: action is needed.

And our cross-Canada survey found that you agree. You told us you want to pay less for your insurance. You told us you should be paying less for your insurance. And you understand that you can pay less for your insurance, if we fight fraud.

But a problem this big can't be tackled overnight, or alone.

So let’s work together to inform ourselves, to protect ourselves, and to apply the right kind of pressure, in the right kinds of places to drive meaningful reform.
