There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Edson homeowners and renters alike to obtain flood insurance. It’s no secret either that severe weather is extremely costly; in fact, water and wind damage account for half of all property claims in Canada, and extreme conditions have cost Canadians almost $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.
It’s possible for homeowners to be stuck with a bill in the thousands for flood damage repair, which is why we provide affordable flood damage insurance. And that’s not the only thing that sets us apart. With our network of advisors in Alberta and beyond, you can expect exceptional service and expert advice about flood insurance coverage. After all, this type of insurance is relatively new to Canada, so you need to know more than just the price on the quote. Work with us and you’ll discover how we put our members and communities first through the last 70 plus years as a co-operative.
It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. In 2013, this coverage gap was only too apparent as the country suffered its worst-ever year in terms of weather-related damage. That's why we're proud to offer our new Comprehensive Water coverage to our clients in cities across Alberta, including Edson. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
You can minimize the risk of unwanted water entering your home by installing window wells around your basement windows and making sure your eavestroughs and storm drains are free of leaves and other debris.
Your Co-operators advisor can tell you all about our flood insurance in Edson—and how our coverage can protect your loved ones, your home and everything in it when extreme weather strikes.
