Q) I am going to Florida for the winter and taking my car with me. Does my Ontario automobile insurance policy cover me while I am in Florida?

A) Yes. The Ontario Automobile Policy covers you for incidents occurring in Canada, the United States of America and on a vessel traveling between ports of those countries. You should check with your insurance professional, as some insurance companies have underwriting rules limiting the length of time that you will be covered outside of Canada.
