What the Latest Rate Board Filing Decisions Mean for Alberta Drivers

By Rob Stevenson on Jan 13, 2021 3:27:08 PM

The Alberta Auto Insurance Rate Board (AIRB) is the organization charged with regulating auto insurance premiums in Alberta. Each quarter insurance companies can file requests asking for changes to their rates. The AIRB reviews these requests and approves or deny's them based on "actuarial justification and the insurer’s individual circumstances to ensure insurance is accessible, equitable and sustainable for all Albertans". The decisions have just been released for last quarters filings. Here's what these mean to Alberta motorists.

Alberta Government Making Moves to Fix Alberta Auto Insurance

By Rob Stevenson on Nov 2, 2020 10:42:01 AM

Alberta's UCP government is making moves to fix issues that have been plaguing Alberta drivers and insurance companies for some time. Insurance companies who have been attempting to work with our government to improve the situation for Alberta drivers are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel as the UCP announces plans to make changes for the better. This should mean a healthier insurance outlook, more medical support to those injured in collisions and more affordable insurance for Alberta drivers.

Dash Cams - Do They Help Me Save On Insurance?

By Rob Stevenson on Feb 27, 2020 11:45:00 AM

The first piece of dash cam footage I saw was taken from a police cruiser in the Southern US. The officer had pulled over a woman for speeding and she wasn't very please with him. Since then, I've seen plenty of Russian dash cam videos where pedestrians throw themselves onto parked cars in hopes of securing a settlement from the driver. It's clear that these cameras would help solve a dispute over who is at fault, but do they do anything to lower your insurance rates.

What to Expect With Insurance Rates this Fall

By Rob Stevenson on Oct 28, 2019 11:46:57 AM

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this affects us all and it is important that Albertan's understand why insurance rates are increasing this fall. There is no short term fix, but the industry is working with the Government towards a solution. With the Alberta auto insurance rate cap being lifted this September, insurance companies have applied for, and been granted, rate increases by the AIRB (Alberta Insurance Rate Board). We are expecting to see rate increases from all insurance companies on renewals and new policies starting in November.
