There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Innisfail homeowners and renters alike to obtain flood insurance. What you may not realize is just how financially damaging extreme weather can be: severe conditions have cost Canadians nearly $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998, and half of all property claims today are the result of water and wind damage. Rest assured you can now obtain coverage against extreme weather in Alberta with Comprehensive Water insurance from The Co-operators.
Flood damage can cost homeowners thousands of dollars to repair, but our flood damage insurance is affordably priced. Yet 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 find out why we've thrived as a co-operative for more than 70 years—always putting our members and communities first.
Until recently, Canada was one of the few developed nations without insurance against flooding rivers, lakes and other bodies of water. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date for weather-related damage. For that reason, we're proud to provide Comprehensive Water coverage for our clients in cities across Alberta, including Innisfail. If you need to determine the risk to your home, there's also our easy-to-use online assessment tool.
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.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we believe in balancing our economic, environmental and social priorities. In fact,
Innisfail has a public policy system that provides a minimum level of mandatory coverage to vehicle owners when they purchase license plates.
