WINNIPEG - Yet another rebate cheque may be on its way to Manitoba motorists, while the cost to insure a vehicle may also be dropping.
Manitoba Public Insurance says it has submitted a request to the Public Utilities Board to issue a third round of rebates for its customers, the amount on each cheque ranging from $150 to $200. MPI is also asking the board for permission to reduce its rates by 2.8 per cent.
The PUB won’t meet ‘til October, so cheques won’t be arriving until 2022. MPI president and CEO Eric Herbelin says these adjustments will mean drivers would see an average of 13 per cent in savings on their 2022-23 Autopac premiums.
Crown Services Minister Jeff Wharton says the rebate would be welcome news for Manitobans who have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic.
