Sewer backup insurance in Athabaska, AB

As the frequency of severe storms in Canada continues to increase, it's clear that homeowners, renters and landlords in Athabaska are right to start thinking about sewer backup insurance. Since 1998, wind and water damage caused by extreme weather has cost Canadians nearly $10 billion, which is half of all property claims. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.

Certain protection for uncertain weather

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. We are happy to provide a solution with our new Comprehensive Water coverage, which is offered to clients throughout the province of Alberta, including in Athabaska. Take our free online assessment now to find out how high your home’s water risk is.

You can be proactive about minimizing water damage to your home by installing downspouts, sealing cracks in your foundation, cleaning your eavestroughs and ensuring storm drains are clear of leaves and other debris.

Your Co-operators advisor can tell you all about our sewer backup insurance in Athabaska—and how our coverage can protect your loved ones, your home and everything in it when extreme weather strikes.

Our Comprehensive Water coverage is:

  • Simple: This one product covers you for damage caused by sewer or water backup, flooding caused by an overflow of a body of water, buildup of surface water caused by extreme weather events, and underground water that rises and comes into your home.
  • Tailored: Get made-to-measure coverage limits that fit your particular needs.
  • Flexible: Instead of paying a flat amount, your deductible is a percentage of the claim amount (between 2% and 35%, with a $1,000 minimum).
  • Budget-friendly: If you install loss prevention devices, we'll provide a discount. That includes a backflow prevention device or a primary sump pump with a secondary automatic powered backup.
  • Extensive: We don't only cover your home but also your personal property, detached structures and costs incurred in the event that you need to move out of your home while it's being repaired. In the event that your home is at a complete loss, you are not obligated to rebuild—we’ll honour your claim even if you rebuild elsewhere.
