With this recent snowfall, our province is reminding you of the winter tires discount.

Insurance companies have to offer discounts for people who use winter tires. Your insurance rate could be lowered between two and five per cent.

The province says this is to encourage residents to have the right tires for the winter to reduce the amount of collisions. Also, it’s a way to help people with insurance costs.

They say when you are buying tires make sure they have a snowflake logo, and check the air pressure of them at least once a month.
