WHY HOT? LEADING THE WAY FOR B.C. BROKERS
Over the past year, we’ve really refocused the company on making improvements to our service for customers and on keeping rates as low as possible, despite rising claims costs. Our bodily injury claims costs have been increasing dramatically over the last few years and are set to top $2 billion for the first time in 2013. While many external factors are beyond our control, we have begun to make changes to help stem the increase in injury costs.

At ICBC, we know we have a responsibility to provide our customers with the best insurance coverage for the lowest possible cost. In order to do this, we have had to adapt to the changes that face many insurance companies.
