Up until a few years ago, flood insurance did not exist in Canada. 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 Spirit River. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
