Canada has experienced an increasing number of severe storms in recent years, which means the time is right for St. Albert homeowners, renters and landlords to start considering 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.
