What First Time Drivers Need to Know

Written by on 11/17/2015 11:48 AM . It has 0 Comments.

You're turning 16 and getting your drivers license. This can be very exciting. It can also be very confusing. First of all, Ontario has a "graduated licensing" system. This means you have to take three license steps over 5 years before getting a full driver's license. The first license is called G1, the second G2 and the full license is called G. If that doesn't sound confusing enough, here's another very important aspect to consider: auto insurance. Here are some tips: Shop around online. Compare prices, coverage options and service. You may even receive a discount for being a student or requesting an online quote. Consider a higher deductible (the amount you pay in the event of an insurance claim) to lower your premium – but make sure it’s one you can afford to pay if you’re involved in a collision. Go to driving school. Some insurers may offer a discount if you’ve completed a certified driver’s education course approved by your Ministry of Transpo ...

Winter Tires Could Save You Money

Written by on 10/16/2015 7:00 AM . It has 1 Comments.

Ontario’s Ministry of Finance announced that the province is “moving forward with its plan to help lower auto insurance rates” by requiring all provincial insurance companies to provide a discount for drivers who buy and install winter tires, starting Jan. 1, 2016. Winter tires enhance safety and reduce the likelihood of collisions by improving traction, braking and handling in frost, snow, slush and under cold and icy conditions, the ministry said in a statement. Winter tires that are in good condition can shorten braking distances by as much as 25%, the ministry said. When buying these tires, Ontario is also reminding drivers to: • Look for tires marked with a logo of a peaked mountain with a snowflake; • Install the tires in sets of four; • Do not mix tires with different tread patterns or size; • Change tires that are worn close to the tread-wear indicators; and • Check the tires’ air pressure at least once a month For full article: http://www.canad ...

5 Tips for Closing the Cottage

Written by on 10/6/2015 10:00 AM . It has 0 Comments.

 

Cottage season is winding down and many cottagers will close up their home away from home in the coming weeks. Here are 5 tips to help ensure your cottage is protected over the winter months.

1. Shut off the water supply and drain the pipes to prevent them from freezing and bursting.

2. Unplug all electrical appliances and electronic devices.

3. Turn off baseboard electric heaters. They are a leading cause of cottage fires. If the cottage uses central heating, be sure to turn it down or off.

4. Clean out the fireplace and close the damper flue tightly to prevent animals from getting in.

5. Thoroughly clean the kitchen, including your fridge and leave the door ajar for air flow.

What Are Your Possessions Worth?

Written by on 9/8/2015 10:00 AM . It has 1 Comments.

Most people underestimate the value of their possessions. If you don’t have an up-to-date inventory of your belongings, chances are you will have a hard time identifying the items you are missing should you suffer a loss. The Consumer Price Index (CPI), provided by Statistics Canada, is an indicator of changes in consumer prices experienced by Canadians. CPI on clothing and footwear in Ontario alone has increased by 9.4% since 2010. We often underestimate the value, quality, and quantity of our possessions. Print a copy of this personal property inventory checklist or download an Excel sheet provided by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, to track your possessions room by room. It is also a good idea to take photos of your possessions. Be sure to keep your inventory checklist and photos at an off-site location, in a fire-proof safe or save electronically in a cloud storage. Do you have enough coverage for your possessions? To avoid nasty surprises in the event that you need to make a claim, be sure to ...
