B.C.drivers awaiting their fuel rebate cheques can expect them to arrive in the mail within the next week. ICBC began sending out 2.8 million cheques in June and the last batch has been mailed.

The province is following through with its plan to help B.C. drivers offset the high of fuel, which spiked in February after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In March, Premier John Horgan announced that all drivers who had a person basic auto insurance policy in February would receive a $110 rebate, while commercial drivers would receive $165.  

If you have not yet received your rebate, the cheque is in the mail.

According to ICBC spokesperson Brent Shearer, 25,000 rebates have been sent to customers who signed up for direct deposit, and 573,000 eligible customers were issued as credit-card rebates.

“All other customers, including those who paid by debit, cash, cheque or payment plan, as well as customers whose credit cards could not be processed (for reasons including expiry dates or other technical reasons), will receive their rebate as a cheque,” said Shearer.

In June, ICBC began sending out cheques to Canada Post for delivery to 2.8 million drivers. The last batch of cheques has been mailed out and ICBC customers can expect them to arrive within the next week.

Overall, 3.5 million ICBC customers were eligible for the gasoline rebates, which total $396 million.

Shearer said ICBC will not issue rebates to customers through a text message or email. Anybody who receives an email or text which requests that you click to a link should treat that as a scam and delete the message.
