Phil Gibson, Managing Director of Personal Insurance at Aviva Canada responds to Ontario Budget 2019

April 11, 2019 (Toronto, Ontario) – “At Aviva Canada, we believe the single most important change the industry must make in 2019 is to be the champion for drivers nationally and, in particular, here in Ontario. We’ve also worked closely with government to push for regulatory reform that benefits consumers first.

That is why Aviva Canada fully supports the PC government’s transformative plan to reform auto insurance in Ontario.

Minister Fedeli’s plan, Putting Drivers First, addresses all these issues by introducing consumer choice, competition and innovation in auto insurance. By cutting red-tape and reducing costs in the system, the government’s plan will allow insurers to offer products that meet an individual consumer’s specific needs at more affordable prices.

We look forward to continuing to working together with the Ontario government to fully implement these common-sense reforms to improve auto insurance for our customers and for all drivers across Ontario.”
