On Monday, July 8 the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) witnessed power outages and flash flooding due to a severe rain storm. Some areas experienced more than 100 millimetres, drastically surpassing the previous one-day rainfall record of 29.2 mm.

Our emergency Claims office is open 24 a day, seven days a week to respond to policyholders’ calls.  To help manage inquiries, we have compiled a tip sheet for you to share on what to do in the event of a flood.   We have mobilized our team of Claims Adjusters and Claims Partners throughout the GTA to respond to the situation.

At this time, we would like to assure you that our claims team is fully staffed and operational.  In the event of a claim, we will be able to respond in our usual prompt fashion. We’re here to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our claims department can be reached directly at 1-888-739-1209.
