Types of homeowners insurance in Ontario.
Though you’re not required, by law, to insure houses in Ontario, most lenders will only provide funds if your home is insured.
Homeowners can choose from a range of products, including:
Comprehensive or All-Perils: The most thorough and often recommended coverage. This type of insurance will protect your home in Ontario and its contents against all perils and losses – except for those that are explicitly excluded in the policy. For example, often, earthquake damage, water or insect damage are excluded.
Basic or Named-Perils: This type of insurance covers your home and its contents against specifically named perils. While this type of insurance tends to be less expensive, it also means the homeowner assumes a greater level of risk in the event of damage.
No-Frills: This insurance type is minimal. It’s available for homes that don’t meet underwriting standards.
To determine rates in Ontario, home insurance companies look at a range of variables, including:
Policy holder’s claims history
