Insurance type

As a homeowner and member of a group insured with The Personal, you can get all-risk insurance to protect your property against most accidental damage and liability coverage to protect you in the event of injury to others or damage to their property.

Protect your home with all-risk insurance

When you take out a home insurance policy with us, your residence, detached private structures (such as sheds) and personal property are protected against common risks like fire, theft and vandalism. You’re also covered if a pipe suddenly bursts or a household appliance (such as a dishwasher) breaks and causes water damage in your home.

Our all-risk insurance also covers:

  • Accidental damage (such as a paint spill on carpet)
  • Additional living expenses in the event of major damage following an insured loss (i.e., what you pay out of pocket if you have to relocate after a fire while your home is being repaired)

We also insure condominium units, apartments and secondary residences.

Example

While doing laundry, Simon knocks over a bottle of bleach that spills onto the floor and all over his clothes. Not only are his clothes ruined, but his wood floor is seriously damaged. His all-risk home insurance policy will cover the costs of repairing the damage.

Protect your assets with liability coverage

Liability coverage protects you if you accidentally injure another person or damage their property. For example, if:

  • A fire in your house spreads to your neighbour’s home
  • A visitor slips on your icy stairs and breaks their leg
  • Your dog bites a houseguest

Without this coverage, your finances could be put in jeopardy if you’re sued. Most policyholders opt for $1 million in liability insurance, though under certain conditions you can choose up to $5 million.
