Overview

Fasken Martineau reviewed the legislative landscape governing motor vehicle insurance liability cards in Canada.

Toronto (Canada) – Fasken Martineau, a leading international business law and litigation firm, was commissioned by the Centre for Study of Insurance Operations (CSIO) to review the legislative landscape governing motor vehicle insurance liability cards in Canada – with a view to assessing how the current legal regime would permit electronic versions and/or electronic delivery of those slips. The advisory report, eSlips: E-Delivery of Motor Vehicle Insurance Liability Cards, is authored by Daniel Fabiano, partner at Fasken Martineau in Toronto and was completed in late 2015.

The report:

  • Provides an overview of the legislation governing motor vehicle insurance liability cards
  • Describes case studies from jurisdictions that have permitted “eSlips”
  • Identifies opportunities for modernization in Canada

“While the pink card regime has existed in Canada for decades, it is clear that this paper-based system needs to be modernized. Although many legal barriers to e-commerce have been eliminated through provincial e-commerce statutes, this is one example of a lingering requirement for traditional paper documents that continues to hamper the insurance-sector,” said Daniel Fabiano, partner at Fasken Martineau in Toronto.
