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

Canada was one of the only developed nations without flooding insurance until recently. In 2013, this coverage gap was only too apparent as the country suffered its worst-ever year in terms of weather-related damage. For that reason, we're proud to provide Comprehensive Water coverage for our clients in cities across Alberta, including Lethbridge. If you need to determine the risk to your home, there's also our easy-to-use online assessment tool.
If you clear your storm drains and eavestroughs and install window wells around your basement windows, you can mitigate the risk of unwanted water causing damage to your home.
