About The Co-operators home insurance.

The Co-operators was founded by a group of Saskatchewan farmers who believed they weren’t being well-served by traditional insurance providers.

In 1945, the farmers established the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, collectively contributing $25,000 into a communal risk pool.

At the time, one of the founders, Albert Savage, likened the fledgling insurance provider to the acorn that would inevitably become an oak tree. In the years that followed, the company expanded east to Manitoba and Ontario. Today, they’re headquartered in Guelph, Ont.

While a lot has changed in its 70-year history, community is still central to The Co-operators philosophy, the aim of which is to create sustainable societies by promoting the co-operative business model.

The Co-operators provided major financial relief during several Canadian natural disasters including the fires in Slave Lake and Fort McMurray in 2011 and 2016 respectively. In addition, The Co-operators donates 1% of their pre-tax income to charities and non-profits as well as partnering with the Kids Help Phone.

How to get the cheapest home insurance quote

Getting insurance for your home is easier than you think. To get the lowest rate possible, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada recommends following these steps when shopping for home insurance.

Compare home insurance quotes from various providers.

Ask your broker or agent about bundling your home and car insurance policies.

Ask your broker or agent about which discounts you qualify for.

You might be able to further reduce your by increasing your deductible (the amount you pay toward a claim before your insurance kicks in) and by offering to pay your insurance bill annually instead of monthly.

Increasing your deductible is a great way to save on home insurance in the short term, just make sure you have money reserved for this purpose. Focusing on finding cheap quotes isn’t always a good idea. Having the right amount of coverage — now that should always be the goal.

Factors that determine your home insurance quote

Your home insurance policy will be customized to suit your needs and the property you’re insuring.

Home insurance premiums are determined by dwelling type (is it a single-detached home, a house with a basement tenant suite, or a condo?). Insurance companies also try to predict the kind and size of claim you might make in the future.

Here are some of the criteria insurance companies look at when calculating your premium.

  • The square footage of your home.
  • Contents and quality of construction.
  • The location of your home.
  • Distance to a fire hydrant.
  • Your insurance claims history.
  • The age of your roof.
  • Your home’s plumbing.
  • Your home’s electrical system.

Identity fraud - The Co-operators homeowners insurance includes an endorsement called Identity Fraud Coverage Expense, which reimburses clients $10,000 - $25,000 in the event your identity is stolen.
