Obtaining an insurance quote and purchasing or modifying an insurance policy online
This Site offers a secure way of obtaining a car and home insurance quote and purchasing or modifying a car insurance policy online.

In addition, you must provide information concerning your mode of payment (credit card or preauthorised debits). The information provided to us must be correct; otherwise it is possible that you will be unable to obtain an insurance quote or to purchase or modify an insurance policy online. Additional information may be required by our certified insurance agents over the phone in order to process or review your request.
In the event where you provide personal information regarding a third party, you confirm that such third party has authorised you to disclose such personal information to us.
Please note that any quote or premium provided through the Site is not guaranteed and may be reviewed with you over the phone by one of our certified insurance agents.

Or, you can still choose to receive a paper copy of these documents by mail. If you choose online access only, you understand that these electronic documents may be used as evidence and will have the same force of law as if you had received them by mail.
By choosing electronic documents only, you agree that the email address you provided is your last known address as defined in the Quebec Civil Code or equivalent legislation. You are responsible for notifying us, in a timely manner, of any email address change.
