I pay $90 ( or $60 - can't remember ) per year which covers the license tag and basic mandatory insurance ( liability ).
Most provinces don't intertwine their licensing and insurance systems. Here in Alberta, and I believe in Ontario, the provincial government doesn't sell insurance, so the license fee is just a license fee.
At least here, there is no separate liability insurance for the trailer - it is covered by the tow vehicle (my trailer is listed on my auto policy for clarity, but there no associated premium paid).
In Alberta, the trailer license fee is
truly one-time (lifetime of the trailer with that owner). It looks like it is the same in Ontario: Driver's Handbook: Registering your trailer
