In Saskatchewan there are two components to automobile insurance: public and private.
SGI provides drivers with the minimum coverages required by law. By law, all Saskatchewan registered vehicles must have at least $200,000 of liability insurance. When you register your vehicle this is what you receive. As well, in most situations, your vehicle registration provides you with insurance on your vehicle to its actual cash value with $700 deductibles. There are exceptions, but for most vehicles this is what is provided. You can purchase this coverage at any SGI motor license issuer.
The second component is private insurance. Private insurance policies can increase the amount of third party liability insurance that you carry and also reduce your deductibles. Sometimes you will hear terms such as “package policy” or “auto pak” or “auto extension insurance”. These terms are often used to describe the private auto insurance which is available in addition to your basic plate insurance.
