NOVEMBER 28 UPDATE: The Federal government has passed a bill legislating Canada Post workers back to work. The legislation means the rotating strikes that have been impacting the insurance industry since October 22 ended on November 27. Talks continue between Canada Post Corporation and CUPW, the union representing postal workers in the negotiations.
The strike has caused widespread disruption to businesses and consumers, including the insurance industry and its insureds.
Brokers were able to protect their consumers from this type of disruption by signing up for CSIO’s My Proof of Insurance eDelivery solution. This solution allows brokers to send digital policy documents and auto liability cards which can be stored on the insured’s mobile device.
My Proof of Insurance is available to CSIO members at no additional cost, featuring a fast setup process and integrations with many BMS vendors.
