How to calculate car insurance rates in Manitoba

Car insurance in Manitoba is provided through the province’s Autopac program. Your Autopac car insurance rate is calculated based on the following factors:

  • Where you live (MPI divides Manitoba into four territories)
  • How you use your vehicle, whether it’s occasionally or daily for commuting
  • The type of car you drive (its make, model, and safety features)
  • Your driving record

Unlike provinces with private car insurance markets, Manitoba drivers are not rated based on their age, gender, or employment status. However, young drivers still pay more for car insurance than experienced drivers, due to their lack of insurance history.
