Ontario Government Working Well With The Financial Services Regulatory Authority

The Progressive Conservative government of Ontario and the newly appointed Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) will be working together to restructure auto insurance rate regulations, supporting auto reform strategy, and developing fraud reduction policies. FSRA replaces FSCO this year.  Additionally, auto insurance rate control methods will be reviewed and the question of whether postal codes have a relation to a driver’s rating factor will be examined.

Insurance companies want modifications to the approval process when it comes to rate increase as it takes too long and may have an impact on their profits.

The FSRA budget and priorities documents will have input from the Ontario government working to reduce fraud, and improve the decision making process.  FSRA is expected to take over from FSCO sometime in June.
