Do you know what is the difference between home insurance and tenant insurance?
Home insurance is sometimes used as a blanket term for all types of property insurance – house, condo, and renter’s insurance.
Renter’s or tenant insurance, however, is property insurance designed specifically for renters or tenants.
It provides different coverage than traditional home insurance and is usually much more affordable.

While home insurance isn’t mandatory in Canada, lenders will generally require proof of insurance as a condition of financing. Even if you’re mortgage-free, unless you can easily afford to replace your home and its contents, you should ensure you have a policy in place.
