There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Claresholm homeowners and renters alike to obtain water damage insurance. It's estimated that half of all property claims can be attributed to damage caused by extreme weather, which has cost Canadians almost $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998. Find out how you can protect your home against Alberta's extreme weather with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
