Alberta’s New Direct Compensation Property Damage (DCPD)

Why is Alberta moving to DCPD?

DCPD is a fairer and more efficient approach to insurance claims and vehicle repairs, and is already used in most provinces in Canada. Under DCPD, damages to your vehicle will be repaired faster and without the delays and complications that can arise when dealing with another driver’s insurer.

DCPD reduces costs associated with subrogation – the process insurers use to determine who pays for a claim following a collision. Along with other reforms, it will help stabilize premiums for the long term.

Consumers who have questions about DCPD and what it means for them should contact their insurance representative or IBC’s Consumer Information Line at 1-844-2ask-IBC or email
