Helping Canadians return from the United States

Do you need to rent a car to get back to Canada quickly?

  • We’re adding liability coverage for rented or borrowed vehicles (Endorsement 27) to our existing private passenger and light commercial vehicle insurance policies at no extra charge.1 So if you need to rent a car to drive back from the United States, you won’t have to buy the rental company’s insurance.
  • If your car is in the United States longer than expected, you’ll also be covered for this period of time at no extra cost.1
  • These coverages apply automatically to existing policies. There’s no need to call us.

Helping people make deliveries

Are you using your own vehicle to deliver meals, groceries or prescription drugs during the pandemic?

  • Whether you’re volunteering by delivering takeout meals, groceries or prescriptions, or you’re making deliveries as the owner or employee of a restaurant, pharmacy or grocery store, we’re offering you temporary auto insurance coverage for deliveries1 at no extra charge.
  • This coverage applies automatically to existing policies. There’s no need to call us.
    • This coverage will not be added if deliveries are made via third party apps and services like UberEats, Skip the Dishes, Instacart and Amazon Flex. These services remain a prohibited use.

Our prevention measures

 

Our priority is keeping you and our employees safe. We’re following government health guidelines to help slow the spread of the virus.

  • All employees returning from travelling abroad are working from home as a preventive measure.
  • Right now, employees who can work from home are being asked to do so.
  • Business travel has been suspended.
  • When possible, team meetings are being held online or by phone rather than in person.

You can count on us

 

We’re continuing to monitor the situation as it evolves and to listen to your concerns. Remember that we’re here to support you if you need help. Thank you for your trust.
