Report of Vehicle Damage

The Regional Municipality of York is responsible for maintaining its roads according to certain legislated standards (Minimum Maintenance Standards found in the Municipal Act, 2001 and Ontario Regulation 239/02). Should you experience damage to your vehicle while driving on a road in York Region, you may submit a Road Incident Damage Report to the Region for investigation. York Region staff will conduct a fair and impartial investigation of liability on a without prejudice basis.

You are required to control and limit any damage you have by choosing one of the two options noted here:

1. Report the claim to your insurance company as required under the Ontario Automobile Policy. Your insurer will review/process your claim, repair your vehicle, and then may collect from The Regional Municipality of York if we are legally at fault.


2. Repair the damage to your car immediately and await determination of liability by The Regional Municipality of York.


Please complete a Road Incident Damage Report form. The Clerk’s Office will send the Road Incident Damage Report form and any attachments (photos, invoices etc) to the Risk group for investigation. If we require more information, we will contact you directly. Once your vehicle is repaired, please include a copy of the invoice along with the Road Incident Damage Report form.
