There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Brooks homeowners and renters alike to obtain water damage insurance. 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. Make sure your home is protected against Alberta's extreme weather: learn more about Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
