When you buy your first home it is normal that the bank lending you the money to make the purchase requires that you buy a home insurance policy that will cover at least the amount that they lent you to buy it. The bank is looking out for its own interests, not yours so when you do buy your first home through a mortgage make sure that you get enough coverage to protect yourself too. Many banks will give you a home insurance policy to sign when they are ready to give you the loan, go over it and find out what is in it for you in case something happens and your house is destroyed or damaged. If you are not protected, get them to change the policy before signing it.
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.
