There is no doubt about how harsh winters can be. When it comes to snowfall and ice, commuters often find themselves facing roads that have yet to be plowed or salted, yet they still have places to reach. There are some provinces that now offer insurance discounts for snow tires, but not all areas can take advantage of this.
Snow tires are now mandatory in parts of Quebec and British Columbia. In Ontario, insurance discounts for mounting winter tires on your vehicle begin on January 1, 2016. While Alberta has yet to follow suit, jurisdictional changes could force providers to pick up the discounting policy in the future.
