Overland Water Coverage Now Available!
As of June 1, 2015, we are pleased to offer eligible policyholders the option to purchase Overland Water Endorsement through one of our insurance partners. This coverage provides protection in the event that water suddenly accumulates and enters your property during weather events such as heavy rain, spring run-off, or overflowing lakes and rivers. It also further enhances water damage protection for property owners or tenants with existing sewer backup coverage.
If overland water enters your home, sewer backup coverage will not cover your loss.
According to Environment Canada, over the past 60 years, our climate has been getting warmer and wetter. That means:
- Canadians now experience an additional 20 days of rain each year.
- Severe water events that used to happen every 40 years are now likely to occur every six years.
With a warmer and wetter climate, an aging storm water infrastructure, and more extreme weather than ever, we highly recommend that you consider the options that are available to you.
