Mississauga has witnessed a few weather events (wind, ice, snow, flooding) in the past that resulted in severe damages to residential properties. Damages caused by these events have led to an increase in insurance claims and made significant economic and health and safety impacts on residents.
Residents in general should ensure that their homeowner’s policy provides adequate coverage of the appropriate hazards in their area. It is important that you are familiar with your insurance policy and that you fully understand what is and is not covered.
Speak with your insurance representative about tailored package policies designed to insure your home, condo or apartment.
Five questions to ask your provider about your insurance policy
Do not wait until you need to make a claim to discover that your existing policy does not cover you against a specific loss. Speak to your insurance advisor to ensure you have the necessary coverage for your personal circumstances and update your policy regularly.
