Basic coverage

These are the types of coverage to consider when you own and use a car.

Civil liability (mandatory)

Civil liability insurance covers you if you injure another person or cause damage to their property, or if you are involved in an accident that’s not your fault.

In Quebec, no matter how old your vehicle is, you are required by law to carry a minimum of $50,000 in civil liability insurance. However, $1–2 million is the recommended amount.1
