Collision Reporting Centres

Drivers in Ontario who are involved in collisions must report their collision within twenty four hours to a Collision Reporting Center. Here a police officer will inspect your vehicle for damage. The drivers involved then complete a simplified government collision report form which is reviewed by a police officer.

Any driver involved in a collision where damage to each vehicle or property is more than $1,000 may report the collision to a Collision Reporting Center. However, there are some exceptions as to when you should have police immediately visit the scene of an accident.

Below are the list of exceptions as to when you should have police immediately visit the scene of a collision instead of visiting a Collision Reporting Center. Exceptions to using a Collision Reporting Center:

  • Collisions involving an injury or a death
  • Criminal activity in a collision (e.g. impaired driving)
  • Collisions involving federal, provincial, or municipal vehicles
  • Collisions involving any public transit vehicles
  • Collisions involving a person who is uninsured or a suspended driver
  • Collisions involving dangerous goods
  • Collisions involving damage to private, municipal or highway property.

After an Accident

You should prepare yourself before visiting a Collision Reporting Center by collecting any applicable information. Immediately after a collision try and take the following steps:

  • If it is safe, remove your vehicle from the road immediately after a collision.
  • Call police to ensure police presence is not required and obtain the location of a Collision Reporting Center.
  • Exchange all information with the other parties, including any witnesses (e.g. names, address, phone, insurance info, pictures if possible).
  • Bring your vehicle to the Collision Reporting Center most convenient to you within twenty four hours.
  • Bring documentation with you to the Collision Reporting Center (e.g. driver’s licence, ownership, insurance, pictures).

Auto Claim: What steps should I take?

When filing an insurance claim for property take into account the following:

  • Look at your damage and determine if there are any safety risks. If safe, make minor repairs to prevent further damage — keep an accurate record of repair expenditures.

  • Major damage may require contractor/engineer inspections.
  • Some repairs may not be covered unless you purchased a specific endorsement, such as building code upgrade costs.
