What is the Alberta "grid" system and how does it affect my rates in this province?
In October 2004, the Alberta government created a grid tool to set the maximum price on insurance premiums for the coverage you have to have. The grid system is made up of 3 steps that determine your premium:
Step 1 - determines your base premium
This grid looks at where you live (Edmonton, Calgary or anywhere else in Alberta) and on how much third party liability coverage you choose.
Step 2 - determines the premium for your compulsory coverage
Every insured driver gets a grid level designation based on their years of driving experience, and their at-fault accident claims.
Step 3 - factors in your driving record
This takes into account whether you've had any traffic or criminal code convictions in the past 3 years.
