Personal Tenant Insurance

Our tenant insurance policy not only protects the contents of your rental unit but you and your family as well. Our tenant policies automatically include $1,000,000 in personal liability coverage, but your protection doesn't stop there.

If your rental unit is uninhabitable after an insured loss, your TELUS INSURE.IT policy will provide you with coverage to help pay for any additional living expenses. Additional living expenses may include hotel rooms, storage costs and moving expenses. Ask us for more details.

The most popular forms of property insurance are Standard and Comprehensive:

  • Standard form covers named perils coverage to your contents. (Named perils include damage from events such as theft, windstorm, fire, lightning, etc)
  • Comprehensive is the most extensive coverage and includes all risks* to contents.

If you operate a business from your home, you should consider the additional property coverage offered by INSURE.IT called Homework®. Just ask us for more details.

With INSURE.IT, you'll benefit from these innovative insurance coverages and features:

  • Insure your "toys", such as snow vehicle, motorhome, watercraft or seasonal dwelling.
  • Special comprehensive coverage - a TELUS-only exclusive. If your home is destroyed by fire, you'll get the compensation you need including all eligible additional living expenses, personal contents and outbuildings.
  • "Student Away" - if you have a student in the family away at school, your insurance extends to their belongings at school*.
  • High "special limits" insurance on items such as business records, computer software, securities, etc.
  • Jewellery coverage based on appraised value - not just replacement value.
  • Complimentary coverage for voluntary liability, ATM robbery and a family member's belongings while in a healthcare facility.

Plus, you may also qualify for discounts if you are:

  • Claims-free
  • Mortgage-free
  • Using a centrally monitored fire and burglar alarm system
  • Living in a home that is less than 15 years old
