The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Calgary are more aware about flood 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. Make sure your home is protected against Alberta's extreme weather: learn more about Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.

It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date 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 Calgary. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
You can minimize the risk of unwanted water entering your home by installing window wells around your basement windows and making sure your eavestroughs and storm drains are free of leaves and other debris.
