CADRI supports Ontario government’s move to foster innovation in the insurance business
The Ontario government’s promise to allow insurers to offer their customers more digital options is a welcome move says the association representing direct insurers.
“We know that 70 percent of Canadians are willing to download an application from their insurer,” commented CADRI Chairperson & CEO Alain Thibault. “In this context, it makes sense for us to be allowed to offer them proof of their automobile insurance digitally, if they want it.”
In its Fall Economic Statement released yesterday, the Ontario government said it will change the regulatory framework to allow electronic proof of auto insurance, usage-based technology and full electronic commerce in the insurance business.
“Having an application or a device reflect exactly how you drive means that your insurer can offer rates tailored to your safe driving record,” said Thibault. “New rules encouraging user-based insurance could encourage more Ontarians to try this out.”
CADRI looks forward to working with the government to make the regulatory system governing automobile insurance more efficient: making the market more competitive and increasing consumers’ choices.
