How is auto insurance sold in Saskatchewan?

Posted on January 3, 2023

In Saskatchewan, insurance brokerages are the primary distribution channel for compulsory auto insurance coverage on behalf of Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) and the SGI Auto Fund. In this capacity, brokers are also known as issuers, and are also responsible for providing other core SGI motor licence issuing services, such as coordinating vehicle registration and drivers' licenses.

Additional auto insurance over and above the legally mandated minimum coverage can be purchased through licenced insurance brokers as well. Drivers should fully understand what they are and are not covered for before getting behind the wheel. Visit to learn more.
