Home insurance coverage in Toronto

While home insurance isn’t required by law in Toronto, many lenders require that you have it. But even if you’re mortgage-free, it’s still strongly recommended to keep you from going out of pocket to pay for major damage, replace stolen items or cover medical and legal costs for someone injured on your property.

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.
