Is It Required to have Insurance in Alberta?

Mandatory insurance in Alberta is typically only required for vehicles and in certain circumstances for commercial insurance.

Home and tenant insurance are not required by law. However, as is the case with home insurance, the purchase of coverage may be necessary to have a mortgage approved. Tenant insurance may also be required in a lease.

Basic auto insurance in Alberta, however, is required by law, and failing to have it can result in significant fines. Failing to pay those fines could lead to jail time.

Recreational vehicle insurance is like automobile insurance for motorized vehicles and vehicles that are driven on public roadways. RV insurance must also comply with Alberta’s official recreational vehicle towing guide.

What’s Covered by Insurance in Alberta?

If you own a vehicle and regularly drive it, it’s mandatory to carry basic auto insurance. Driving without car insurance in Alberta could result in serious penalties.

Home, Condo and Tenant Insurance in Alberta

There are several levels of home insurance which cover the home’s contents and structure that you can choose from in Alberta. Basic home insurance covers perils that you choose to include in the policy, and it’s considered the most affordable, yet most limited option.

Another level of coverage is broad home insurance coverage, which covers contents and home structure. Comprehensive coverage includes nearly all risks, while no-frills home coverage is specifically for properties that have certain issues or challenges.

There are several more levels of home insurance coverage that you can include in your policy. Sharp’s brokers will be happy to discuss this with you.

As for tenant insurance, it covers personal properties inside the unit, personal liability for accidents that happen in the unit and additional living expenses to pay for alternate residence while your unit is being fixed.

Even though your medical insurance is valid anywhere in Canada, and some medical expenses can be claimed once you return from travelling abroad, there are still some medical costs that are not covered.

That is why getting travel insurance is beneficial since it can cover things like trip cancellation and interruption, emergency medical insurance including repatriation, flight and travel accidents insurance and baggage loss or damage.

FAQs: Alberta Insurance

You might have heard that insurance rates in Alberta have significantly increased lately, especially auto insurance.

However, when it comes to determining the exact cost of insurance in Alberta, there is no one answer.

There are several factors that go into how insurance rates in Alberta are calculated.

Some of these factors include age, credit score, employment details, insurance history, place of residence as well as your policy limit and premium amount paid each month.

Other factors are specific to the type of insurance. For example, your auto insurance rate will depend on the make and model of the car and your driving record, while your home insurance rate considers the location and building material of the property.

Since insurance is all about risk, the fewer risk factors you have, the more you can save on your insurance policy.

That is why the best way to get cheap insurance in Alberta is to manage risks whether for your home, car or business.

Things like installing security systems can go a long way in saving money on insurance in Alberta.

Another hack that can save money on insurance is to bundle policies together as much as possible.
