Just as no two homes are the same, Square One Insurance believes that your insurance policy shouldn’t be one-sized fits all. Square One offers you personalized policies that cover exactly what you need, including both home insurance and tenant’s insurance. In Canada, they provide services to residents in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.
Square One started in 2011, when a group of insurance professionals realized that traditional insurance wasn’t enough for policyholders. Together they envisioned a new kind of insurance provider that allows for more flexible and unique policies, allowing policyholders to get the best kind of service they need. Square One minimizes their overhead costs by selling policies exclusively through their website or over the phone. This allows them to offer you great policies at low prices.
Square One’s home insurance policies are underwritten by The Mutual Fire Insurance Company of B.C., who have a financial strength rating of A- (excellent). Mutual Fire Insurance is a member of the Property and Casualty Insurance Compensation Corporation, which protects policyholders and claimants.
DAS Legal Protection Inc., on behalf of Temple Insurance Company, issues Square One’s legal protection insurance.

Square One also allows you to select coverage for additional living expenses, which covers costs that arise if your home can’t be lived in due to damage from an insured loss. You can get personal and premises liability coverage up to a limit of your choosing.
If you select the Condo Owner’s Protection, you’ll have coverage for improvements and changes made to your condo that may not be covered by your condo corporation’s insurance policy.

On top of this extra coverage, you’ll get access to Square One’s Condo Concierge Service. The Concierge Service looks at your condo corporation’s insurance policy and recommends the best coverage for you. This includes access to the telephone legal advice hotline, which provides confidential general legal advice for any personal legal or tax problem.
If you rent out your property, rental income insurance covers you for rental income that you lose if your rental property becomes uninhabitable due to an insured loss like a fire.
If your identity is stolen, this optional coverage will protect against expenses you incur to recover your identity and fix your personal credit rating.
