Electronic Proof of Auto Insurance Reminder – Insurers no longer required to issue paper version to consumers electing the electronic option

In September 2019, FSRA released guidance that approved Ontario insurers to issue electronic proof of auto insurance to their policyholders, with the policyholder’s consent

The one-year transition period is now complete. Insurers are no longer required to issue the approved paper version of the insurance card to policyholders along with the electronic version, if selected.
