Car Insurance in Alberta is the Law

Car insurance in Alberta is government-regulated. This means every vehicle owner and operator requires insurance. The minimum coverage requirements in Alberta include: third-party liability coverage which covers you if you are held responsible for causing bodily injury or damage to personal property and accident benefits coverage which provides you benefits if you’re injured in an accident, no matter who’s at fault.

Outside of the mandatory coverages, there are many optional coverages and endorsements that you can add to your car insurance policy. For example, collision coverage or specified perils coverage. If you are interested in learning more about these coverages and more, contact your broker and they will be happy to address any of your questions or concerns.

Things to be aware of regarding car insurance in Fort McMurray, Alberta

Fort McMurray’s population is relatively small compared to Alberta’s major city centres, meaning that the number of vehicles operating on our streets is less of a concern for insurance providers in the area. However, given that Fort McMurray is considered to be Canada’s “oil capital”, one concern is the number of large trucks operating in the area which are an added risk for local drivers. Harsh winters are also another concern when it comes to both car and home insurance. Like every other province in Canada, rates vary by region across the province. Residents of Calgary and Edmonton and the surrounding areas can expect to pay the highest premiums in the province. However, as a result of the risks unique to Northern Alberta, residents can expect to pay, on average, the third highest rates in the province. If the cost of your car insurance is a concern for you, contact your broker and they will do everything they can to help!
