April 28, 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – “Too many honest Ontarian drivers are unknowingly falling victim to fraud. They need protection. At Aviva Canada, we’ve long been committed to raising awareness and educating Canadian customers about fraudulent providers and practices. But this is not enough to solve the problem, which is why we continue to push for industry collaboration and government reform that establishes stricter consequences for those criminals found guilty of committing organized, criminal fraud.
The anti-fraud measures outlined in the 2022 Ontario Budget will help address these issues. We look forward to continuing to work together with the Ontario government and FSRA to protect customers, share our industry knowledge and implement common-sense reforms that will improve auto insurance for our customers and for all drivers across Ontario."
