    • Identity theft assistance
      This feature is included with all Scotia Home Insurance policies at no additional cost. It provides access to a team of assistance coordinators, certified lawyers, and mental health professionals who inform and support you through the process of restoring your personal credit reputation.

    • Property damage coverage
      If you're a homeowner, property damage coverage protects your residence, outbuildings (garage, shed, etc.), and personal belongings against most accidental damage (fire, theft, vandalism, water, etc.) If you're a tenant, it protects your personal property.

    A variety of coverage options to help ensure your individual needs are met

    Escape of fuel oil
    In addition to covering your personal belongings in the event of a fuel oil leak or spill, this option covers:

    • Soil decontamination
    • Legal liability

    Water damage
    Your basic policy covers you against accidental water damage in the house.
    For example, it protects you in case of leaks caused by:

    • Electric household appliances, such as a dishwasher
    • Plumbing interior problems, such as a burst pipe

    You can add optional water damage coverage to your policy to protect you against:

    • Water damage caused by rain or snow seepage through the roof or walls
    • Sewer back-up and seepage of surface or ground water
    • Overland flood

    Valuable articles coverage
    Protect the things that are important to you, including high-value items such as jewellery, fine art and other collectibles you may have

    Secondary premises coverage
    Coverage is also available for cottages, mobile homes, rental properties, secondary residences and watercraft

    Above ground, semi-inground or inground swimming pool and hot tub
    Protect your outdoor pool and hot tub. Frost and the weight of ice and snow are just some of the threats that can damage your pool or hot tub. You can add extra coverage to your basic insurance to protect:

    • Your outdoor above-ground or semi-inground swimming pool, including equipment, accessories and patios and decks not attached to the house and giving direct access to the swimming pool.
    • Your inground swimming pool or hot tub, including equipment, accessories and patios and decks not attached to the house and giving direct access to the swimming pool.

    PLUS:
    Personalize your insurance policy
