If you live and drive in Vaughan, you must have valid auto insurance. Driving an uninsured vehicle in Vaughan and the rest of Ontario is against the law.

Basic insurance includes third-party liability, statutory accident benefits, and uninsured auto insurance. More coverage can be purchased if desired. However, doing so will increase your car insurance premium.

Vaughan insurance works under a no-fault system and can only be purchased from private insurance providers. Comparison shopping on can help you find the best rates from the top providers in Vaughan.


Changes to Ontario's auto insurance in 2024

Ontario is currently in the process of reforming how auto insurance works in the province. The goal of this is to reduce the amount of coverage drivers are forced to take out, and in turn, lower their premiums.

Some of the proposed changes include:

  • Option to remove the caregiver benefit, housekeeping and home maintenance expenses benefit, income replacement benefit, and death and funeral benefits (benefits for medical, rehabilitation, and attendant care will remain mandatory, however).
  • Making auto insurance companies the first payer for medical and rehabilitation benefits (at the moment, a person's private medical insurance is the first payer). This change is meant to streamline the claims process and lead to earlier resolution.
  • Option to remove direct compensation for property damage (DCPD) coverage (in effect since January 2024).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Vaughan auto insurance

Do rates change depending on whether I live in Woodbridge, Maple, Thornhill, Concord or Kleinburg?

It is possible that auto insurance rates in Vaughan vary depending on which community you live in. 

Where you live is one of the many factors taken into consideration when determining your premium. Your rate might be higher if you are living in or commuting to downtown Concord than it may be if you live in a quieter part of Kleinburg, for example. This is because the more cars you're around, the higher your likelihood of a claim.

What other factors contribute to my auto insurance rate?

In addition to where you live, your premium also takes into account:

  • Your driving record and insurance history
  • Whether you drive to work
  • The likelihood of claims in your neighbourhood
  • Your insurance company's own insurance claims history
  • The type of car your drive
  • Where you drive and/or park your vehicle
  • If your car has winter tires
  • What discounts you're eligible for (be sure to ask!)

If you have any questions about what determines your rate, don't hesitate to ask your insurance provider.
