Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance Card (Canada/Inter-Province)



No. A-18/93
Property & Casualty
Companies in Ontario writing auto insurance must begin using new liability cards containing an important clarification: the phrase Canada Inter-province will now be amended to read


Canada Inter-Province
applicable within Canada and the United States of America


At its recent meeting, the Canadian Council of Insurance Regulators determined that the current wording on the motor vehicle liability insurance card - Canada Inter-Province - may be misleading to authorities in the United States.


Because the general provisions of the standard automobile policy define territory to be Canada, the United States of America or on a vessel travelling between ports of those countries, the Council recommended adding the phrase applicable within Canada and the United States to the wording on the liability card.


This change to cards is effective immediately. Current supplies may be used until February 28, 1994, however, to allow for a smooth transition while insurance companies restock policy supplies, including new motor vehicle liability cards.


Samples of the 30-day liability card and the permanent liability card are attached. The colour (pink) and size of the liability card remain the same.
