Provincial differences do exist. Coverage costs vary by province because each province has its own unique challenges. Average insurance in Ontario are not typically impacted by things like earthquake coverage but the same cannot be said of British Columbia, for example. In Canada, overland flooding is a separate area for insurance and insurers are not typically willing to cover this risk. As an example, an average home insurance premium in Alberta is ~$900/year for homeowners. Quebec homeowners pay on average ~$840/year in home insurance costs.
Do you have a farmhouse in the country side? If yes, is it well-protected? One of my colleagues had to face the same problem. While he lodged a complaint with the police, he needed money for repairing his property. Monitoring property continuously is not humanly possible, especially when it is located at a remote place. What if your property and things get damaged? You will have to pay huge repair bills. This is where home insurance policies seem to be effective. Home insurance is a kind of property insurance that is designed to protect your home. Damages to the property, house or its contents are covered under the policies. A host of items such as furniture, electronic equipment, clothes, jewelry, etc can be insured as the valuables kept in the house. Excluding physical intrusions by criminal elements, the umbrella cover is also extended to accidents at home and risks from natural calamities like floods, fire, earthquake, rock fall, landslide, etc.
Home insurance policies change for different types of properties. Tenant insurance (also called renter's insurance) only covers the contents of a rented house and, depending on the policy, liability. The homeowner's coverage, on the other hand, is focused on the insurance of the building itself to ensure protection in instances that are related to natural hazards, fire or earthquake, or due to unlawful human activities like vandalism. Home insurance covers the rebuild value of a dwelling, but not the market value, which is, in fact, higher. That is why, when the property has undergone some damages, the insurance provider will carry the rebuilding costs so the policyholder is able to restore a corresponding property. This chart features the average premiums for rented and homeowner's insurance in Alberta and Canada. As the chart shows, owned property insurance is, on average, higher than the renter's policy.
Buying Home insurance can always be termed as a good decision since it gives you appropriate financial cover in the event of theft, damage, robbery, earthquake, storm, or more. However, many people do not think of it as a necessity and often avoid purchasing it so as to save their money. Keeping in mind the benefits associated with home insurance, the price cannot be considered as the best comparison point. After all, it just does not cover for your home but also for your belongings and gets you monetary aid even in the case when you are liable for third party injury or property damage.
