Is it Mandatory to have Insurance in Calgary?

Yes, you need insurance in Calgary if you own a car or if you finance a home or vehicle. By law, the ‎only mandatory insurance is third-party liability insurance for your car – this covers the costs of ‎repairing or replacing another person’s vehicle as well as expenses relating to injuries or a lawsuit if you’re ‎at-fault in an accident.

You’ll likely need insurance if you finance a car or recreational vehicle or have a ‎mortgage on your home. Lenders may require you to have a certain amount and type of insurance. If you’re not financing your vehicle or home, insurance is still a good idea. While it’s a fantastic city ‎to live in, Calgary experiences a lot of weather perils: wind, hail, flooding and snowstorms. And the crime and ‎traffic that come with every big city. Insurance can’t prevent bad things from happening, but it can help ‎you recover and rebuild financially.‎

How to Get Best Insurance in Calgary

There are several ways to get low-cost insurance rates in Calgary. It could be as easy as paying a lump sum every year to pay your insurance bill instead of monthly fees. Ask your insurance company if any of the below tips apply to you.

  • Submit a claim only if you can’t pay out-of-pocket

What Does Insurance Cover in Calgary?

Your specific Insurance coverage in Calgary depends on many variables, including your insurer. A policy covers two main areas:

Property Damage

Can help cover repairs or replacement of a vehicle, home, personal belongings, or business property. For example, a fire destroys your home.

Liability

Can help cover legal expenses if someone gets hurt or has their stuff damaged while on your property or by your accidental actions. For example, someone slips on your front steps and is injured, so they sue you.

Insurance is customizable. There are a ton of options when it comes to insurance. Each type of coverage and each insurance company offers different amounts and types of protection. Our job is to help you get the coverage that matches your budget.

What Are the Common Types of Business Insurance?

Whether you just started a small accounting business or head up a team of 50 in the IT industry, you need to know how to protect yourself, your staff, and your assets.

7 Types of Business Insurance:

Professional Liability

This coverage helps you if you get sued and provides you with financial assistance.

Property Damage

This coverage protects you from losing money after a loss to your business property and items, including your furniture, computers, and other expensive items.

Commercial General Liability

If you unintentionally damage a visitor’s items or if they get hurt at your business, this insurance coverage will provide financial help.

Equipment Breakdown

Mechanical or electrical failures happen. This coverage helps you pay for repairs or replaces new equipment.

Business Interruption

If a flood causes your business to close, this coverage will help you pay for items, including staff salaries and the heating bills.

Cyber Liability

Cyberattack or data breach protection is available with this type of coverage.

Commercial Auto

Commercial Auto helps you pay for any damage to vehicles used for work purposes.

What is a Loss Settlement Option?‎

You have insurance for your belongings, but what happens if you have an insured loss? It’s hard to know how much money you’ll be reimbursed. A foolproof way to have an estimate of the amount you’ll get back is through your loss settlement option.

A loss settlement option is the money your insurer pays you after your claim is settled. You can choose from the actual cash value, replacement cost, or agreed value options at the time you set up your policy. These 3 options apply to all types of insurance you buy – from your home to your car insurance and everything in between.

Calgary Quotes

3 Loss Settlement Options:

Agreed Value

The agreed upon value of an item or property. This option is used for special items, such as jewelry, antiques, or a heritage home.

Cash Value or Market Value

This option includes the purchase price of your home, minus the depreciation. This is not the price you bought your home at, but rather the current value of your home.

Replacement Cost

The total cost of replacing your home after a loss, without considering the depreciation.

Get the Right Calgary Insurance Coverage 

Getting the right coverage in Calgary is the perfect mix of protection and price.

What is the Policy Limit for Calgary Insurance

A policy limit is the maximum amount of money your insurance company will pay you after you make a claim. The amount may go directly to you or a third-party that was impacted by the loss.

For example, while the minimum third-party liability for car insurance is in the thousands of dollars, it’s often recommended to have up to $2 million in third-party liability. The $2 million is your car insurance policy limit.

If you need details about your policy limit, contact one of our Calgary Insurance brokers or your insurance company.

What Factors Impact Calgary Insurance Rates?‎

The cost of insurance in Calgary depends on a lot of different factors. Two people with the same car can have different car insurance rates in Calgary. The same for neighbors who can have completely different home insurance premiums.

Factors that impact the cost of insurance in Calgary:

  • Your demographics
  • Your insurance and claims history
  • Your credit rating
  • Your driving record (number and severity of tickets)
  • Where you live or operate your business
    • This determines the claim and crime rate of the area, as well as the distance to a fire station and fire hydrant, how close you are to risks like rivers, and the frequency and severity of natural disasters
  • The make, model and age of your car, motorcycle or recreational vehicle
  • If you commute and how far
  • How much it would cost to rebuild or replace your home, belongings, vehicle, or business premises
  • The building type, age and construction of your home or business premises
    • The age and type of roof, heating, plumbing, and electrical also impact your Calgary insurance prices
  • The type of business you run – its industry, the value of the business you do, et cetera
  • Security or damage mitigation devices you have installed
  • Your insurance options, including coverage, deductible and policy limits
  • Discounts you’re eligible for

Each type of insurance in Calgary has different elements that impact the cost of insurance. It will also vary by insurance company and your own personal policy choices. Our Calgary insurance brokers can help you find competitive rates.

I am a sharp customer for 9 years since I landed in Canada, they are good and responsive, however being close on both Saturday and Sunday is not a very convenient practice for its customers, moreover a bigger pain point is that their on-call wait time for a new customer and an existing customer vary by a large number which seems totally unfair and feel like exploitation of existing customers, I hope they will look into this, they do charge top dollars for their service so a better turn around seems like need of the hour.
