The future of mobility: AMF launches a consultation on connected and automated vehicles

Insurance Organization

Montréal – At a time when intelligent vehicles are growing in popularity, the Autorité des marchés financiers (the “AMF”) is releasing an issues paper on connected and automated vehicles (“CAVs”). Given the increasingly significant impact that CAVs will have on consumers and insurers in the years to come, and the repercussions on the overall operation of the Québec automobile insurance system, the AMF is seeking to deepen its knowledge of the various issues related to such vehicles.

“The arrival of CAVs on our roads serves as a reminder that the development of technological innovations extends into all fields of human activity, with repercussions that are providing much food for thought, particularly on accident liability,” said Louis Morisset, AMF President and CEO. “The diversity of the questions raised shows that CAVs are a concern not only for regulators but also for many stakeholders in our society, from the P&C insurance sector and auto industry to consumer associations,” added Mr. Morisset.
