Canada has experienced an increasing number of severe storms in recent years, which means the time is right for Edmonton homeowners, renters and landlords to start considering sewer backup 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. Find out how you can protect your home against Alberta's extreme weather with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. This anomaly was easy to see in 2013, when Canadians experienced their worst-ever year for weather-related damage.

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.
