We all know that auto insurance fraud is a serious problem in Canada. It costs honest drivers between $100 and $150 in additional premiums each year and $2 billion to the industry as a whole. At Aviva, we’ve been fighting fraud on behalf of our customers for over 25 years. We need your help to raise awareness about 

the issue.

Today, we’re proud to release our first online fraud report called Crash, Cash and Backlash – Auto Insurance Fraud in Canada. The report includes a national consumer survey on fraud, information about what consumers pay for auto insurance by province, and how fraud contributes to their premiums.

- Don't put up a nameplate outside of your house with your full name. A burglar can use this information to look up your number in the phone book and call to see if you are home. 

- Don't leave a note on the door or in the mailbox telling a friend/family member that you aren't home.

- Don't leave spare keys in an obvious place such as the mailbox or under the front door mat. This makes it very easy for a burglar to rob your house quickly without forcing entry.
- Don't leave cash and handbags in view in your home.
- Don't leave any doors unlocked when you are at the other end of the house or in the yard.
