About Onlia

How we're working to make Canada a safer place for everyone

Who we are

Our company

Onlia launched in Ontario in 2017 with the mission to improve community and road safety for all Canadians. We believe that life is better when we’re safer together – and that just one serious accident or vehicle collision is one too many.

We started as a small team with a big dream. Today, we offer a suite of digital safety products that make it easier for you to live safely, and reward you along the way. This includes car and home insurance, vehicle roadside assistance, and Onlia Sense, the mobile app that helps you develop safer driving habits by rewarding your progress with gift cards and cashback.

Our mission

Road safety isn’t just an individual responsibility. It’s a public health issue that affects all of us.

In Ontario alone, someone is injured every 30 minutes due to distracted driving*. Across the country, fatal collisions involving drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians number in the thousands year after year. This isn’t a status quo that we think is acceptable.

At Onlia, we believe that the best way to change things for the better is to make safe-living easy and rewarding – from proactively coaching and rewarding safer driving behaviours, to offering insurance protection when bad days happen. 

Everyone deserves to get home safely, every time. Together, we’re making that vision a reality.
