Home insurance coverage in Ottawa

While home insurance isn’t required by law in Ottawa, many lenders require that you have it.

But even if you’re mortgage-free, you’ll still want it to protect yourself from paying thousands (possibly more) to replace or repair damaged or stolen items. 

Types of home insurance from Onlia

Whether you’ve just bought your first time, planning to rent, or have a condo, we have insurance tailored to your needs.

  • Homeowner insurance: This will cover your private residence, protect the contents of your home and your liability if someone gets hurt in your home.
  • Renter insurance: Also called tenant insurance, it will protect your belongings and give you liability coverage. It doesn’t protect the home itself, but that’s fine because you don’t own it.
  • Condo insurance: Condo insurance will protect your unit within a condo building, including the contents of the unit like appliances, clothing and furniture. It’ll also cover additional living expenses if you need to relocate while your condo is being repaired.
