Question

Do any US auto insurance companies offer auto insurance coverage in Canada?

My family and I are going to live in Toronto for two years (+/-) on my husband's work visa. Can we get temporary coverage while we are in Canada?

Many insurance policies may cover you in Canada — if it is for short term trips. I would check with your current carrier, but it is likely you'll need to select a Canadian insurance provider if you'll be living there for two years. In addition, policy periods are generally six-months or one year, so you should look for a regular policy instead of a temporary one; temporary car insurance doesn't really exist. See more info about this here.
