Condo insurance coverage, explained

Matt Hands

Generally speaking, a condo unit is owned by a single person or a family, whereas the building and its amenities are shared amongst all the residents. 

In insurance-speak, you’re responsible for covering your own condo unit, your own contents, and your personal liability. For example, if someone slips and injures themselves in your unit, the financial responsibility is on you. And if a thief breaks in and steals your expensive jewellery, you’ll need to replace all the valuables on your own.

Types of condo insurance coverages in Canada

While your condo corporation insurance provides some form of coverage for the building, as well as the construction of your unit, there are still many risks you aren't protected against. That's where your personal condo insurance policy comes in.


Included condo homeowners insurance coverages

Not all companies provide the same types of protection, but here are some common coverages on a standard condo home insurance policy.

Personal liability


Personal property


Unit improvements and betterments


Unit additional protection (contigency coverage)


Loss assessment


Loss of unit


Additional living expenses



Optional condo homeowners insurance coverages

Aside from the standard coverages on a condo home insurance policy, you can also ask your insurance provider about the following optional protections to ensure all your unique needs are met.

Directors and officers liability


Overland water


Sewer backup


Identity theft


Do condo fees cover insurance?

Your condo corporation’s insurance is paid collectively by the unit owners’ maintenance fees – it typically provides coverage for incidents of liability and damage within common areas, such as the elevators and the gym. The corporation’s insurance will likely also cover certain parts of your unit that are core to the building, such as its windows and light fixtures.

So while your maintenance fees do pay for condo corporation insurance, there are still many gaps you won’t be protected against – this is where your personal condo insurance policy comes in.

Here's a table outlining some of the core differences (keep in mind, however, that every insurance policy is different, so be sure to double-check your specific case).

What is the average condo insurance cost?

On average, expect to pay $30 to $50 per month – or $400 to $600 per year – for a condo insurance policy. To find your best rate, be sure to compare condo insurance quotes with us today.

Factors that impact your condo owners insurance premium

Insurance providers factor in your unit’s unique details to calculate the cost of your condo coverage. The more details provided, the more accurate condo insurance companies can be in assessing risk, probabilities and cost. Generally speaking, the more risk your property brings – or the more expensive repairs and replacements may cost – the more expensive your condo insurance premium will be. 

When determining your premium, condo insurance providers look at the following factors:

Property type


Credit score


Replacement cost


Location


Internal construction


Renovations & betterments


Past claims history


Pets


Special use
