How accurate is Kanetix map?

Just curious if anyone in the know can comment on the accuracy of Kanetix map.

https://www.kanetix.ca/insuramap

Is it really true that Vaughan/Richmond Hill has higher insurance rates than Toronto? I always thought their rates would be lower.

Are Oakville/Burlington really that low?

Oakville
Why do you ask?
Yes, they are pretty accurate. In Toronto I paid $1400, then moved to Oakville and now pay $700. That said, my wife's insurance next month is going from $700 to $1200!!! Looks like insurance companies need to keep their profits up while the rest of us suffer.

I am trying to decide of where to move potentially and car insurance is one of the variables - don't want to pay thousands of dollars if I don't have to. That being said the numbers you named are very low - and 1200 is average for Oakville according to Kanetix.

I feel like there is definitely collusion going on between the auto insurance companies but it is difficult to prove.

It's all relative. We're 40 with perfect record.

Accuracy is quite relative because I am sure there are people living in the lowest insurance areas that are paying a lot fo insurance...personal record, vehicles etc are differentiators.

I am quite sure it has everything to do with analysis and actuaries rather than collusion.
The Government cannot give to anybody anything that the Government does not first take from somebody else.

I would say the map is relatively accurate. When I moved from Toronto to Richmond Hill, my insurance almost doubled!

Based on the mapping, if I lived across the street, my insurance would drop by 30%. This is nuts!

I wondered this for awhile too, why doesn't Ontario just copy the Quebec system?
