Were you aware that in Ontario, we can now use electronic liability slips, commonly known as pink slips, as proof of insurance? Eslips are liability slips that can be stored electronically on your phone, tablet or computer in place of a paper liability slip. They are acceptable to the staff at Services Ontario and law enforcement officers in Ontario.

Some cautions when using eSlips:
Whether the choice is an electronic liability slip or paper slip, it is the responsibility of the vehicle owners/operators to ensure that there is proof of insurance in their vehicle. The owner/operators will be held responsible even if their device fails to operate due to poor cellular service, drained battery or reduced visibility due to a damaged screen.
Let’s say damage happens to your phone in the course of presenting an electronic liability slip, such as to a law enforcement officer or Services Ontario. The insurance company and other parties providing the documentation electronically are not responsible for the damage to your phone.
