The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Medicine Hat are more aware about water damage insurance than ever before. 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. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.
It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. This gap in coverage was especially apparent in 2013, when Canada experienced its worst-ever year 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 Medicine Hat. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
There are steps you can take to keep unwanted water out your home, including clearing eavestroughs, installing window wells around your basement windows and keeping storm drains clear of leaves and other debris.
Your Co-operators advisor can tell you all about our water damage insurance in Medicine Hat—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,
Medicine Hat has a public policy system that provides a minimum level of mandatory coverage to vehicle owners when they purchase license plates.
