Explaining Ontario Home Insurance

Why do Ontario homeowners need insurance?

You will need money to repair or replace your house if it is destroyed by a fire or damaged by a natural disaster. Liability protection may help you pay expenses if a guest in your home is injured. And your homeowners insurance can cover your losses or the cost of repairs if you are a victim of theft or vandalism.

Should your Ontario home be destroyed or seriously damaged, failure to accurately insure your property can delay the processing of your claim and in some cases, result in insufficient funds being available to properly rebuild your home.

It pays to have the right type of home insurance to ensure your Ontario property is properly protected, and our experienced insurance brokers can get you the cover you need.

What is covered by your home insurance policy in Ontario?

Every home in Ontario is different. That’s why it is so important to have the right tailored protection for your dwelling. Sometimes referred to as fire insurance, homeowners insurance in Ontario is generally broken down into four categories:

  • Home owners
  • Condo unit owners
  • Tenants
  • Seasonal home/cottage

Depending on which house insurance policy you need, your Ontario Acera Insurance broker will guide you through the coverage and put together a program that suits your lifestyle.

What is umbrella insurance and why do you need it in Ontario?

Once the liability limits are exhausted on your home or auto policy, your umbrella policy takes over and provides another layer of liability protection should you be sued and found legally liable for causing injury to someone else or damaging their property. Because the average size of jury awards has increased in Ontario over the last few years, umbrella insurance has become more important. Best of all, the average cost for this protection is less than a dollar a day. Ask an Acera Insurance advisor how you can protect you and your family from an unexpected claim.
