Intact to Insure Uber Drivers in Alberta Beginning July 1, 2016
As the sharing economy – be it through services, automobiles or homes – continues to rapidly grow in Canada, Intact Insurance has launched a new ridesharing policy, tailored to Uber drivers in Alberta.
Effective July 1, 2016, the SPF 9 Transportation Network insurance policy will be issued directly to Uber by Intact. It will provide insurance coverage from the moment a ride request is accepted until the moment passengers exit the vehicle.

Which Uber Operations are Covered?
Intact only insures Uber’s ridesharing operations. Under Uber’s current product suite, this includes UberX, UberXL, Uber Select, UberHop and UberPool.
Drivers participating solely in the UberEATS line of business are not covered with this policy.
If you have any questions, please, speak to your broker and they will happily reach out to Intact with your query.
What Uber Coverage is Available?
With the SPF 9 policy, Uber drivers will receive:
- $2 million in third-party liability
- Standard Accident Benefits
- Collision & comprehensive coverage
The deductible for the SPF 9 policy is $1,000.
If your personal use automobile policy is through Intact or Novex, coverage can be added to your existing policy. Again, consulting your broker about adding to your existing policy, and what the cost will be (coverage starts from around $20/month), is the best way to proceed.
