When a family member dies in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to make a CTP claim.

Compensation may be available for the loss of support (financial and non-financial) of a deceased family member for the following relatives:

  • spouse or domestic partner
  • child
  • brother/sister
  • grandparent.

If there is more than one dependent, they are all included in a single claim.

Funeral expenses may also be covered by CTP insurance. Find out what compensation you may be eligible for.
