Overland Water Protection – February 2016
Overland Water Protection is a product covering damage caused by water that suddenly accumulates and enters your property during weather events such as heavy rains, spring run-off, or overflowing lakes and rivers.
Aviva and Intact Introducing Overland Water Protection
With tens of thousands of Canadian suffering losses from water damage in recent years, Water Protection offers timely coverage for you. This coverage can be added as an endorsement to existing personal property policies.
This new product covers damage caused by water that suddenly accumulates and enters your property during weather events such as heavy rains, spring run-off, or overflowing lakes and rivers.
Overland Water goes hand in hand with the water coverage in your base policy and sewer backup coverage.
Both Overland Water Protection and Sewer Backup coverage’s are optional. These options and coverage are different for Aviva and Intact.
Aviva offers sewer backup with the option to add overland water protection in addition to sewer backup.
Intact offers the water protection as a package deal, (sewer backup, water protection and overland water protection (limits apply.)
Overland Water Eligibility
The Overland Water Endorsement is available to the vast majority of customers and can be added to eligible or qualifying policies for new business, at renewal or mid-term.
However, there will be a few people who live in areas that are very highly prone to overland water where this offer of coverage will not be offered.
As well, properties located within 100 meters of a river or with a reverse slope driveway are not eligible for the Overland Water Endorsement
