Who We Are
Manitoba Public Insurance is a Crown Corporation that has provided basic, compulsory automobile insurance coverage (called Autopac) to Manitoba motorists since 1971. Our services are available through claim centres and service centres in 13 communities across Manitoba.
Driver and vehicle licensing and insurance services are provided by more than 300 Autopac brokers province-wide. Manitoba Public Insurance operates claim centres and service centres at locations throughout the province, and offers mobile driver testing units to serve remote communities.
Autopac extension, competing for your business on optional coverages, provides supplementary protection to the basic Autopac package. The optional coverage includes increased third party liability limits, reduced deductibles, Excess Value Coverage and Extension Loss of Use coverage, to name a few.
Our Special Risk Extension (SRE) department, also operating in the competitive market, provides optional coverage for specialized risks. These include coverage for large commercial trucking fleets and garage policies.
