SGI has announced how much money it will be sending out this year for its auto rebate.
In total, the rebate is set to cost around $95 million dollars and is expected to be given out at $100 per person.
"Our government is pleased to deliver this benefit back to the people of Saskatchewan," Minister Responsible for SGI Don Morgan said in a release sent out this morning. "The Rate Stabilization Reserve has a surplus that was largely generated by its well-performing investment portfolio. We believe it’s fair that all Auto Fund customers benefit equally, regardless of how long their vehicle was registered or the premium they pay for that vehicle. All drivers are facing higher fuel costs, regardless of what they’re driving."
That's a drop in the amount received compared to last year's rebate, which was $285 per person and $350 million in total.
