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 Peterborough. 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.

Overall consumers spend in Ontario less on Home Insurance than in Alberta and British Columbia. That is the case due to more stable natural conditions e.g. lack of strong seismic activity like British Columbia or flooding similar to Calgary. Nevertheless the recent years demonstrated that nature can be also unfriendly in Ontario including flooding and ice storm that strongly impacted among others the whole Greater Toronto Area and nearby cites and towns. These were very significant natural occurrences that impacted people’s homes and, as consequence, home insurance.

Important note about flooding risk – typically overland flooding (e.g. due to strong rains or raised water level in rivers) is not covered by home insurance. Thus emergency government program(s) would be the only way to somewhat compensate financial impact of the flooding. flooding can be caused not only through a strong rain and storm but also through melting snow.

How Can You Save on Home Insurance in Peterborough?

  • Anti-theft protection: Home alarm systems are recognized by some insurers in premiums (e.g. The Personal)
  • Credit score: Your good credit can score you a lower premium. This is because most companies use your credit score when calculating home insurance premiums.
  • Employee / Union members: IBM Canada and Research in Motion offer discounts to union members. Check to see what your employer or union offers.
  • Stop smoking: Some insurers increase their premiums for the homes with smokers since this means an increased risk of fire
  • Home Insurance deductibles: Raise your deductible to lower your premium.
  • Heating: Insurers like forced-air gas furnaces or electric heat installations. If you have an oil-heated home, you could be paying more for insurance. Keep this in mind when you are house hunting.
  • Claims-free discount: You can get rewarded for being claim free. Terms and conditions vary and not all insurers offer this discount, so ask around if you have been claim free for a long time.
  • Pipes: Insurers prefer copper or plastic plumbing. Consider upgrading your galvanized/lead pipes during your next renovation cycle.
  • Stability of residence: Lived in the same residence for years? You may be eligible for a stability discount. A few insurers offers one. (e.g. Grey Power Insurance)
