In July 2011, the government formed the Auto Insurance Anti-Fraud Task Force based on a commitment in the 2011 Ontario Budget. The Task Force was created to bring together stakeholders and government to collaboratively review the issues and recommend solutions.
The Task Force was led by an independent Steering Committee chaired by Fred Gorbet, who served in the federal government in a number of positions, including Deputy Minister of Finance.
