The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Athabaska are more aware about water damage insurance than ever before. The facts speak for themselves: extreme weather has cost Canadians nearly $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998, and water and wind damage now account for half of all property claims. Find out how you can protect your home against Alberta's extreme weather with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
Until recent years, insurance against flooding rivers, lakes and other bodies of water was not available in Canada. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date for weather-related damage. That's why we're proud to offer our new Comprehensive Water coverage to our clients in cities across Alberta, including Athabaska. 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 water damage insurance in Athabaska—and how our coverage can protect your loved ones, your home and everything in it when extreme weather strikes.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we believe in balancing our economic, environmental and social priorities. In fact,
