Tow the Guidelines: IBC praises OPP for new set of towing guidelines for Ontario

Toronto, Ontario – Towing services in Ontario are under a new set of guidelines from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in the aim to provide clearer direction to tow operators, according to a press release from Friday.

These new guidelines come after the Ontario government announced it would be establishing a task force to improve oversight of the towing industry and “will help develop a regulatory model to increase safety and enforcement, clarify protections for consumers and improve towing industry standard”, according to the press release issued by the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC).

“IBC applauds the OPP for developing these guidelines for towing services,” said IBC Ontario vice-president Kim Donaldson. 

“These guidelines are another tool to help protect drivers and ensure that at the scene of a collision, the custody of the vehicle always rests with the insurer and vehicle owner.”
