The following is a comparative case study analysis of automobile insurance in Canada. The purpose of this analysis is to construct an appropriate model of automobile insurance for the province of Ontario. The first chapter is a literature review designed to give the reader enough background information to understand the analysis of the study. This is followed by a research design which outlines the units of analysis, the content of the case analyses, the criteria used in the comparative analysis, and the techniques employed throughout the study. The third chapter consists of four case studies: Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, and Alberta. This chapter is broken into two parts including a historical review, and a current model section. The fourth chapter is a comparative analysis which examined the four jurisdictions according to the criteria given in the research design. This is supplemented by a survey of the literature most relevant to the pre-established criteria. Finally in chapter five, a model of automobile insurance for the province of Ontario is designed, based on the data derived from the case studies and the comparative analysis.Dept. of History, Philosophy, and Political Science.
