Why do I need home insurance?
There are two main reasons to purchase a home insurance policy:
- To protect you from future liability claims.
- To have replacement value on your property and your assets or home belongings should they be damaged or destroyed.
There are three main types of home insurance — homeowners’ policies for detached single-family homes, renters’ policies, and policies for people in a strata property. Each has a different set of parameters and coverages available. Talk to a personal lines advisor before you lose your life savings to a flood, fire or other catastrophic event.

Why do my rates go up if I’ve never had a claim?
To understand why insurance rates are increasing is to understand the complexities of life in 2020. Practically everything we own contains some form of technology that is expensive to repair or replace. Couple that with climate change and extreme weather conditions striking a major metropolitan area, and the number of insurance claims have skyrocketed in the past 10 years. Simply put, when the insurance industry is in a hard market trend, consumers can expect to pay a higher insurance premium and face more underwriting restrictions, or possibly be turned away altogether depending on the property, business or event that requires coverage. During a hard market, your Reliance Insurance advisor can be your best friend. Let us help you find an insurance solution that you can afford.
TIP: Go through each room and use what’s called an inventory booklet to document your belongings. This will be a lifesaver if you have to make a claim.
