Tenant insurance in Quebec

Landlords have few legal obligations when it comes to compensating tenants for damage to personal property if something happens to the rental unit. Your tenant insurance policy will protect your belongings and provide valuable liability coverage.

As a tenant, you are legally responsible for your own damages to your rented unit and for the well-being of your visitors. Your policy covers these important items, and will cover improvements you make to the unit like new carpeting or tiles.

Liability coverage

Our policies include liability coverage, meaning you don't have to worry if someone has an accident in your home, like slipping on your steps. We even cover the costs if you're on vacation and you break something in your hotel room.

Optional coverage

You can purchase extra coverage for:

  • Seasonal residence and its contents
  • Water infiltration and sewer backup damage
  • Artwork
  • Use of residence for professional activities
  • Personal belongings in storage
  • Earthquake damage
  • Golf carts

Let your advisor know about any furs, gems, electronics or other high-value items in your home. You may need additional coverage to ensure they are fully covered.

Replace items at today's prices

With the Replacement Cost Endorsement, you can replace your personal belongings at today's prices, not their depreciated value, which is what you would get if you were to sell them as used items.
