Personal Insurance, Barrie, ON

Insurance is a broad term that covers a wide variety of different policies and regulations. The purpose of insurance of any kind is to protect your finances in the event something goes wrong—for example, a home insurance policy will cover the costs of repairs if the property is damaged, among other things, preventing you from having to pay for them yourself.

Coverage explained

Liability Coverage

Under a home insurance policy, this protects you if you are sued as a result of damage or injuries you accidentally caused. Under an auto insurance policy, this is mandatory to drive a vehicle. It provides financial protection for damage or injuries to another person or vehicle if you caused the accident.

Water Coverage

Water is a leading cause of damage for homeowners. Typically referred to as Overland Water Coverage, this optional coverage can cover damage that occurs when water enters your home due to a body of water overflowing like a lake or river, heavy rains, or rapid snowmelt. Something to keep in mind as severe weather patterns in Canada continue to increase.

Property Coverage

This coverage is often referred to as Contents Insurance and is included in a home insurance policy. It protects anything you own that you could pick up, pack and move with you to a new home. These items are even covered when they’re temporarily outside of your home, like in your car. You can usually choose the Contents Insurance coverage amount that makes sense for you.

Identity Theft Coverage

Identity theft typically occurs because the thief wants to use stolen personal information for financial gain. With this insurance, you protect yourself, your finances, and your reputation if someone steals your identity. Please note, if you deal with online transactions that require personal information, there’s always a risk. You will still need to safeguard your personal information online, but identity theft insurance removes some of the concern and hassle.


Is home insurance mandatory?
Honestly, home insurance is not legally mandatory in Ontario and British Columbia. But, if you need a mortgage, it’s often required by the bank or lender to have home insurance and display proof.
Is car insurance mandatory?
Yes. In Canada, it’s the law. Anyone who owns or leases a vehicle must purchase insurance in order to drive that vehicle.
How do insurance companies decide insurance rates?
Insurance companies determine rates differently for different insurance products.

For home insurance, some factors that affect your premiums include: where you live, the replacement cost of your home, materials used to build your home, the age of your home and the coverages you need. Coverages can include personal contents coverage or optional coverage like increased limits for jewelry protection.

For car insurance, some factors that affect your premiums include: where you live, the type of car you drive, your insurance history, if you commute to work, and any optional coverages you select.
