​​​BCUC approves ICBC Basic rate application on interim basis​​​

​​January 13, 2023

The British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) has approved, on an interim basis, a zero percent rate change to ICBC Basic insurance rates.

ICBC's recent revenue requirements application to the BCUC asks for no overall change to Basic insurance rates for the next two years. This becomes effective on April 1, 2023 and will remain in effect until the BCUC completes its public review of ICBC's application.

There are a number of ways for the public to participate in the review process. Read the Public Notice – Appendix B​.

The BCUC has also set the regulatory timetable for the review of ICBC's Basic rate application.
