VICTORIA, B.C. – ICBC insurance renewals will be happening online starting May 2022.

ICBC’s online insurance model launches in 2022; customers will then be able to renew their personal insurance and get temporary operation permits, with some restrictions, online. With more products expected to be available in the future.

“We know British Columbians want more convenience when they purchase and renew their auto insurance,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “This is another important step to make ICBC work better for British Columbians. While we make progress toward online renewals, our main focus remains on delivering Enhanced Care coverage and an average 20% reduction in insurance rates for British Columbians.”

In the upcoming year, ICBC will be doing the regulatory and technical work required to get these online services up and running. Including consulting B.C.’s broker community to ensure their readiness for the changes and the development of regulations that are needed regarding license plat decal requirements.

This online insurance model for ICBC is developed with help and input from ICBC’s Online Broker Task Force.
