What Are Typical Home Insurance Premiums In Ontario?


This chart illustrates the average Renters and Homeowners Insurance premiums in Ontario and other provinces including Home Insurance in London. Renters insurance rates are typically lower than home owners premiums due to the nature of insurance: Renters insurance typically covers only the content of your rented property and sometimes liability. It does not cover the building itself since it is covered under the insurance property of the homeowner.

One of the larger topics in the past years become flooding and storms that strongly impacted Ontario particularly in 2013. Unfortunately the most insurers in Canada still do not cover overland flooding and thus we suggest to check with your insurer if these cases are typically covered.

How Can You Save on Home Insurance in London?

  • Change your content coverage: Do you rent an apartment or condo? You can often lower your content coverage. No need to insure your belongings to up to $250,000 if you only have a laptop and some IKEA furniture!
  • Monitoring: Is there other security like a doorman or security guard on the premises? This may mean an additional discount.
  • Hydrants and fire-station: Ask if your proximity to a hydrant or fire station will save you money.
  • Professional Memberships: Are you a member of a professional organization such as Certified Management Accountants of Canada? Some companies offer discounts to professional members, and some organizations offer their members insurance policies. (e.g. Meloche Monnex Insurance)
  • Students: Some carriers provide discounts for students. (e.g.State Farm)
  • Alumni: Graduates from some Canadian universities, such as University of London, McGill University and NAIT, may qualify for a discount through select providers. (e.g. TD Insurance)
  • Dependent students: Dependent students living in their own apartment can be covered by their parents’ home insurance policy at no additional charge. Check with your insurer for this benefit. (e.g. Desjardins Insurance)
  • Stop smoking: Some insurers increase their premiums for the homes with smokers since this means an increased risk of fire
  • Direct insurers: Have you always dealt with insurance brokers or agents? Getting a policy from a direct insurer, also called a captive agent, may save you money. A captured agent only sells products from one company. (e.g. Belairdirect)
  • Benchmark your costs: Use price comparison tools to know how much other companies are charging for similar policies, and check with your peer group to see if these comparisons are similar within your demographic.
