The Background

Every Canadian is required to have auto insurance. Pink slips are used in Canada to show proof of this insurance, and therefore you are required to have your pink slips on you whenever you are driving.

In the past, pink slips have always just been a loose piece of paper that you likely keep in your wallet or glove box. Failure to produce these slips when pulled over by a police officer could land you a fine and affect your insurance rates.

In 2019, the government of Ontario approved the use of electronic proof of insurance. This means that you are now able to equip a digital copy of your insurance to your phone that can be scanned. What this does NOT mean is that you can simply have a picture of your physical pink slips saved to your camera roll.
