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.

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.

Your condo corporation’s insurance isn’t enough on its own – it’s always a good idea to purchase your own personal condo insurance policy to ensure you’re adequately protected against all risks. 

Do condo fees cover insurance?

Your maintenance fees do pay for condo corporation insurance, but there are still many gaps you won’t be protected against. That’s why it’s a good idea to purchase your own condo home insurance coverage.

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.

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


How to get the cheapest condo insurance online

  1. Shop around and compare

    At Ratehub.ca, we take the work out of monotonous phone calls, so you won't be repeating the same information over and over. By entering your details once, you can view multiple quotes from Canada’s top condo insurance providers, and select the cheapest rate possible.

  2. Ask about discounts

    A new job can mean union membership, group discounts, or corporate discounts. And retiree may also save on condo insurance. Performing a yearly review is recommended as you may see discounts apply while your life changes.

  3. Increase your deductible

    A standard condo insurance deductible is $500. If you increase your deductible – which means paying more before the insurance company pays out the rest – you'll see your monthly premium decrease.

  4. Be loyal

    The longer you stay loyal to your condo insurance provider, the more you'll be rewarded with discounts – especially if you remain claims free.

  1. Install monitored alarms

    If you have a monitored alarm system installed, providing communication between your condo security system and the central station of your security provider, you could receive a discount. This typically does not include your own cameras and motion sensor lighting.

  2. Renovations

    If you upgrade your unit with more expensive finishes, it will cost more to replace, and so you’ll likely pay more for insurance. If there are upgrades to your outlets or toilets, it’s worth informing your insurer to see if there may be a reduction.

  3. Bundle policies

    Insurers will often give discounts to consumers who purchase multiple policies under them. If you can, look to have both your condo and car protected by the same provider.

  4. Improve your credit score

    If your insurer monitors your credit score, be sure to pay your bills on time and watch your balance – getting close to the max could hurt your score, therefore limiting your discounts.
