Did you know that lower Eastern Ontario and other areas around Canada are actually on earthquake fault lines?
It's a common misconception that a person's basic homeowners insurance policy covers earthquakes, but earthquake coverage is only available as an extension. Earthquakes are one of the few natural disasters that many people are not covered for by one of their existing insurance policies.
However, it is available through an extension of your existing home or tenants/condo insurance policy, and it can be quite inexpensive. If you're interested in earthquake insurance, a Rhodes & Williams insurance broker can find you the best option to keep your home and assets insured in the event of a disaster.
The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction has developed a tool to use in your research. You can enter your postal code to see the risk of an earthquake in your area. View the Earthquake Risk Mapping Tool Here.
