British Columbians who make use of ICBC services in the province have one more day to weigh in on the topic of Rate Fairness, as the Province puts the wrap on its one month consultation process on how to make auto insurance rates more fair.

The conversation on ICBC began on March 5th and the online consultation option comes to an end at 4 PM on Thursday, April 5th.

So far, the provincial engagement project has seen close to 60,000 site visits, with 29,386 questionnaires completed and almost 400 submissions received.

Attorney General David Eby makes note of how the engagement process will assist the province in making the insurance system fairer for all users.

“This important engagement asks people about changes that could make high-risk drivers pay more, and low-risk drivers pay less,”  ... “We have options about how we can make the system more fair, and I appreciate that so many British Columbians are sharing their opinions that will help shape ICBC for the future.”

Once tomorrows deadline for submissions passes, the province will compile its report that will highlight the findings, with plans to post the document to the provincial website in the weeks ahead.
