With the increase in severe storms across Canada in recent years, homeowners, renters and landlords in Bonnyville know that they need to start thinking about water damage 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 Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators can provide the protection you need against severe weather in Alberta.
Until recent years, insurance against flooding rivers, lakes and other bodies of water was not available in Canada.
