The province approved auto insurance for Uber last month and so far Intact, Aviva Canada, and Pembridge Insurance Company have all debuted coverage. More are likely to follow.

Aon is offering a flexible package for the ride-sharing industry, with its policy not restricted by age or how many years the driver has held a license. Alberta’s rules have been in action since July 1, so the company’s coverage can be active immediately.

The policy will cover “all TNC drivers from the moment they log into their TNC’s mobile app to provide rides for hire,” reports the Government of Alberta.

Statutory accident benefits will also be in place through all three periods of the TNC process:

Period 1: When the application is activated with no passenger

Period 2: When the fare is accepted

Period 3: When the passenger is picked up

“Ridesharing continues to grow at a rapid pace and is changing how we travel,” Caroline Mills-White, senior vice president of personal lines for Aon Risk Solutions in Canada, says in the statement. “As a result, insurance must evolve to meet the changing needs of drivers and passengers alike in Alberta,” Mills-White adds.

“Aon is excited about offering Uber drivers this new product through Intact and Pembridge,” the statement notes.
