Coverage of your home may cover perils like theft, vandalism, wind, lightning, fire, smoke, some water damage, falling objects, explosions and vehicle impact.
Most policies cover your personal belongings, like clothing, electronics, appliances and furniture. There are limits on the amount and the types of items that are covered. For example, cash, computers, jewellery, musical instruments, fine art, coin, stamp or card collections and bicycles may require additional coverage.
This type of coverage can cover damage that you or someone covered by your insurance policy are responsible for causing to someone else, including injuries or damage to property.
Should something happen to your home due to an insured peril and it becomes unlivable, then your living expenses, like hotel accommodations, can be covered until it’s repaired.
Explore home insurance discounts.
Check out the savings you may qualify for.
Discount options eligibility criteria and availability vary by province and insurer.
If you insure all your properties with the same insurance provider, you may be eligible for savings on your premiums.
If you’ve never made a claim or haven’t made one in a while, you may qualify for savings.
If everyone living in your home is a non-smoker, you may be eligible to save on insurance.
Some insurance providers offer discounts to older homeowners. The eligibility age varies between providers.
If you don’t have a mortgage or a secured line of credit on your home, you may qualify for savings.
Home insurance can cover your home and its contents in the case of theft, loss or damage to the inside and outside of your home or property.
It could also help you cover additional living expenses if you're temporarily unable to live in your home such as living in a hotel or a rental home.
Typically, you would purchase home insurance before closing on your newly purchased home.
This ensures that you have coverage on your new property from any incidents that may occur.
In certain circumstances, a financial institution won’t fund a mortgage or line of credit before your home is insured.
Make sure to ask questions about your home insurance needs with your mortgage advisor, financial institution or financial specialist when you are buying a property.
Once you understand your home insurance needs, an insurance company will normally pre-approve the policy and then wait for your closing date to send your proof of insurance.
Some insurance policies require that you estimate the total value of your possessions and the building itself.
Speak with our insurance brokers to determine your insurance needs.
