Overland water protection comes to Alberta!

April 29th, 2015

Aviva Canada has announced an industry first – overland water protection for residential property owners and tenants across Canada.

The coverage – available as an endorsement to personal property insurance policies that have sewer back-up protection in place – will be launched in Alberta and Ontario in June, and rolled out to other provinces throughout 2015.

The devastating floods in Alberta and the Toronto area in 2013 highlighted the need for protection. This new overland water coverage is designed to protect individuals from fresh water flood damage – protection that’s not currently available to residential property owners.

The overland water endorsement responds to losses that result from the accumulation or run off of surface waters, including torrential rainfall when water enters the property.

The endorsement forms a key part of the Aviva Water Protection package, which combines base policy water protection (broken water pipes and more), sewer back-up protection (the backing up or escape of water or sewage) and overland water protection (from water entering the property).
