Car Coverage

Mandatory Car Insurance Coverage

Between daily traffic on the Deerfoot Trail and often frozen road conditions, Calgary driving can be a challenge. Here is the mandatory minimum coverage you need:

  1. Liability Coverage: If you injure someone or damage property, payments are made on your behalf.

  2. Direct Compensation: Damages to your car are covered to the extent at which you are not at fault in a collision.

  3. Accident Benefits Coverage: Regardless of who is at fault, medical and other expenses you are entitled to receive are covered.

Enhanced Coverage

Choose one of these options for beyond-the-minimum protection for your car.

  1. Specified Perils: Protects your vehicle from specified perils such as losses caused by fire, floods, hail or theft.

  2. Comprehensive: All other insured damage caused to your vehicle (except collision or upset).

  3. Collision or Upset: Damage to your vehicle caused by a traffic collision with another vehicle or object.

  4. All Perils: The broadest level of coverage — combines Collision or Upset and Comprehensive coverage along with increased theft protection.
