Issues and Advocacy
Staying ahead of issues that matter to Canadians
Advocating for the insurance industry and the people who count on it.
As the world changes at an ever-increasing speed, we’re staying ahead of the issues that impact the lives of Canadians — and the insurance industry. From advocating for enhanced climate change adaptation efforts to promoting better and fairer auto insurance systems, we’re working with government and industry experts to make sure we’re all prepared for whatever the future brings.
There are approximately 1.3 million businesses in Canada. All have one thing in common: Without adequate insurance coverage, each could be wiped out by a disaster or significant lawsuit.
We believe Canadians deserve affordable auto insurance with more choice and better care for those injured in a collision. That’s why we’re advocating for reforms that will modernize private auto insurance systems and products across the country with the goal of providing consumers with access to enhanced product choices and affordable premiums.
Climate change is a threat to our shared future, and it’s having a serious and growing impact on our safety and our communities today. More and bigger floods, wildfires, hailstorms, and windstorms – influenced by our changing climate – are costing billions and putting people and property at risk.
We are advocating for stronger resilience measures to adapt to climate change, to mitigate its risks and to protect Canadians, their families, and their property.
