The Ontario government is considering making massive changes to the auto insurance system to make this type of insurance more accessible and affordable. That is why the government is conducting a public survey to find out what people think about auto insurance and putting people first.
The survey includes seven statements that users can agree or disagree with. Some of these statements include:
- My insurance policy is easy to understand
- Drivers should pay different rates for car insurance based on where they live
- I can easily find an auto insurance policy that meets my needs
Possible responses to these statements include:
- Completely agree
- Somewhat agree
- Neither agree nor disagree
- Somewhat disagree
- Completely disagree
The survey also asks for demographic information and your relationship to auto insurance, such as if you have auto insurance, work in the industry or are just interested in the topic.
The survey is anonymous because you do not have to provide your name or contact information. However, the answers you provide are subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. This means that some or all comments, materials or summaries may be disclosed to other interested parties. If you do not want your feedback shared, you can contact the Ministry of Finance by phone or email.
The deadline for completing the survey is February 15, 2019.
