Basics

In the event of a loss or accident, civil liability insurance covers you if you injure another person or damage their property.

In Quebec, no matter how old your vehicle is, you’re required by law to carry a minimum of $50,000 in civil liability insurance. However, $1-2 million is the recommended amount so you can be adequately protected in the event of a claim.

This mandatory coverage for your vehicle is called Chapter A.

Collision and upset coverage is not mandatory. However, it is the only way to cover damage to your vehicle if you are at fault in an accident.

This protection covers the cost of repair or replacement in the event of material damage to the vehicle, based on its value on the date of the loss.

This coverage is also called Chapter B2.

FAQ

Here are a few tips on how to get discounts from your insurance company and save on your auto insurance premium:

  • Bundle your auto and home insurance with the same provider Also, if you have more than one vehicle, including recreational vehicles (snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles or scooters) you can save money by bundling them all under the same insurance policy.
  • Some insurance companies will also give you a discount if you have other products with them. iA Auto and Home Insurance will offer you an additional discount if you have other iA Financial Group products, like life insurance or savings products.
  • A higher deductible can also reduce your insurance premium. However, in case of an accident, you would have to cover more of the cost yourself.
  • If you have any anti-theft protection for your vehicle (markings, etc.), that could also reduce your auto insurance premium.
  • There are lots of discounts available: the hybrid vehicle discount, the good driving record discount, the good credit discount, etc.

Remember that cheap insurance is not necessarily the best insurance. Make sure that your coverage is appropriate for your needs and you’ll be getting services that are up to your expectations in case you have to submit a claim.

The best auto insurance is the one that provides the right coverage to meet your needs. It’s important to ask the right questions before choosing your insurance coverage: how old is your vehicle, do you use it, do you regularly travel outside Quebec, etc.

Some coverages are included with your auto insurance policy and you can upgrade them as needed. For example, civil liability –if you regularly travel outside Quebec, 2 million dollars of civil liability coverage is recommended.

There are also other coverages that can be added as options, such as coverage in case of lost or stolen keys, roadside assistance, replacement cost coverage, etc.

Don’t be afraid to ask your agent any questions you have to make sure you understand the coverages available so that you can get the best auto insurance policy for you.

When you renew your insurance, make sure the coverage you have still meets your needs. If there have been some changes in your life, for example, if you are driving fewer kilometres per year, it’s important to let your insurance company know. These changes could lead to savings.

If you want to shop for new auto insurance, you should compare various insurance companies. You’ll have to be careful, because the insurance company that offers the best price may not necessarily be the one with the best coverage. It’s important to take the time to compare the different coverages they offer. Don’t hesitate to ask your insurance agent any questions you might have.

Auto insurance premiums are customized for each person insured. They’re determined based on each insurance company’s underwriting, which is based on the vehicle to be insured and the driver’s profile.

Other factors can also have an impact on the insurance premium such as the make, model and year of the vehicle you drive, whether it’s a new or used vehicle, whether it’s owned or leased, repair costs, etc.

Your insurance company will also take into consideration how you use the vehicle, your annual mileage, your driving record, where you live, past claims, etc., to determine your insurance premium.

Finally, the coverage you choose will also affect the cost. The deductible amount, added replacement cost coverage, civil liability amount and any other additional coverages you add will have an impact on the cost of your auto insurance.
