Electronic Pink Slips—Hopeful Meeting with Alberta Police Chiefs and Increasing Use

August 9, 2018  

Jacqueline Alderton from the Insurance Bureau of Canada and IBAA's Rikki McBride met with the Alberta Association of Chiefs of Police on July 17 to advocate for the use of electronic pink cards and to ask the chiefs of police to work together with the industry on this and other potential issues going forward.

Brokers and insurance companies have been pressing for the acceptance of digital pink cards for a number of years, but one major sticking point, according to Deputy Superintendent of Insurance David Sorenson, is police liability for handling phones. The police are one of the stakeholders that the Office of the Superintendent of Insurance must consult before ruling on electronic/digital pink cards.

The police chiefs are currently determining if they will endorse electronic pink cards for the Superintendent of Insurance. They do recognize that the way consumers want to do business is changing.

To meet consumer needs and the current regulations, an increasing number of brokers are emailing the eSlips through My Proof of Insurance and simultaneously mailing the paper pink slips.

All major BMS vendors in Canada have integrated or will soon be integrating My Proof of Insurance eDelivery for personal and commercial lines (including auto), providing brokers with efficient workflow and user experience. My Proof of Insurance can also be activated for brokers with BMS systems not currently integrated.
