How to make a home insurance claim

  1. Contact the police (for theft or vandalism) or fire department as needed.

  2. Keep a copy of the police report for your records.

  3. Contact our 24-hour emergency line to report your claim: 1-800-607-2424 or
    1-888-875-8088 (Quebec).

  4. Tell us about the incident in as much detail as possible, and provide a list of the items that were stolen or damaged, including (if applicable):

    • a detailed description of the item
    • its make and model number if known
    • when and where the item was purchased
    • approximate purchase cost
    • proof of ownership, if possible (e.g., receipt, photo, warranty registration)
  5. If repairs are required, and with your permission, we’ll then contact one of our approved contractors in your area so they can get started right away — no appraisals or estimates required.

    If you'd like to use your own contractor, we'll provide them with your coverage information and answer any questions they may have. A claims representative will then complete an assessment of the damage, which you can take to your preferred contractor.

  6. If repairs are not an option or your stolen property cannot be recovered, one of our claims representatives will help you in processing your claim for a cash settlement.

  7. If your home is not liveable, make alternate living arrangements. Your group advantage covers additional incurred living expenses such as hotel and meal costs. Ask your broker or claims adjuster for details.
