New B.C. reward program, app for healthy lifestyle

VICTORIA – British Columbia residents who are making an effort to lead healthier lifestyles can now be rewarded with loyalty points such as Aeroplan, PetroPoints, Scene and MoreRewards, thanks to an innovative new mobile app called Carrot Rewards.

Users across the province who sign up for Carrot Rewards will be able to earn their choice of leading, brand-name loyalty points for completing activities centred on making healthier lifestyle choices. This can include anything from completing a health profile, to participating in learning activities and quizzes, and in later phases will include activities like going to the gym, visiting a flu clinic, or buying produce from the grocery store. The app is also designed to link up with wearable devices in later stages to track and reward healthy behaviour: http://www.carrotrewards.ca

 

Now available online: ICBC driving records

As part of a focus on improving digital services, ICBC has launched a new online tool which allows customers to now request their driving records online and immediately receive them by email, for free, through icbc.com/drivingrecords.

Driving abstracts provide details of a person’s basic driving history, including tickets and offences for the last five years. Customers can also access insurance and claims history records that detail a driver’s insurance coverage and claims history, for up to 20 years.

Commercial drivers can also use the online system to ask for a commercial driving record called a National Safety Code abstract. That abstract is a five-year record of a driver’s history and any commercial vehicle-related convictions.
