The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) has approved ICBC's application for a 6.3 per cent increase to basic insurance rates on an interim basis for all new and renewal policies with an effective date on or after April 1, 2019.
The approval of ICBC's basic rate change on an interim basis is consistent with past applications and will lessen the depletion of ICBC's already low basic insurance capital while the BCUC reviews the full application.
There are a number of ways for the public to participate – requesting intervener status, submitting a letter of comment or registering as an interested party.
The BCUC has also set the regulatory timetable for the review of ICBC's basic rate application: https://www.bcuc.com/Documents/NewsRelease/2019/2019-01-02-NewsRelease-ICBC-RRA.pdf
