In fact, water damage incidents are now the leading cause of home insurance claims, according to Info Insurance, the Insurance Bureau of Canada‘s information platform. “In 2019, 47% of claims paid out in home insurance were for water damage”1, reports this association, which aims to inform and raise awareness on various topics and issues related to property and casualty insurance.
