Manitoba Public Insurance is a Crown corporation that delivers insurance, registration and licensing services to Manitoba drivers. We’re available through claim and service centres in 12 communities across the province, and services are also available at almost 300 Autopac agents across Manitoba.

We’re accountable to you. Through our board of directors, we report to the Minister and Department of Justice and Cabinet. We also report to the Manitoba Legislature via the Standing Committee on Crown Corporations and the Public Utilities Board.

Our history

In 2021, MPI proudly celebrated its 50th anniversary of supporting Manitobans. Watch below to look back on the value we have continually delivered through our products, services and road safety education over the years:

Public insurance was introduced in Manitoba after extensive public hearings that found the existing private system to be expensive, inadequate and confusing. The Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation officially opened for business on Nov. 1, 1971, to provide Basic compulsory, universally-available auto insurance coverage.

At that time, the Manitoba Automobile Insurance Committee Report set out the general framework of a public auto insurance system. This included such features as universally available mandatory insurance protection, lower rates than those charged by private insurance companies for comparable coverage, operating at a financial break-even level over the long term and pursuing traffic safety and loss prevention programs.

In 2004, the government merged the operations of the former Division of Driver and Vehicle Licensing into Manitoba Public Insurance, and the Corporation became responsible for the administration of The Drivers and Vehicles Act (DVA).

This led to a complete integration of driver licensing, vehicle registration, driver insurance and vehicle insurance. Driver licensing and vehicle registration are inextricably linked to insurance, providing one of the major advantages of our public insurance system: significantly reducing the likelihood of uninsured drivers on the roadway by ensuring that all licensed drivers are insured drivers and all registered vehicles are insured vehicles.

Today, Manitoba Public Insurance serves Manitobans at service and claim centres in 12 communities, and provides services through more than 300 Autopac agents across the province.
