What Is Insurance?

Insurance is an important form of financial protection. It is available in a number of forms, but its essence is the same. You receive protection from loss or threats you may encounter for your car, home, business and other types of insurance, in exchange for paying a premium.

Insurance is a contract between you and your insurance provider. It is in the form of a policy. This outlines the types of protection you have and the perils you are protected against. You have coverage up to your defined limits. How much you pay and the types of threats you are protected from will vary based on your plan details. Insurance can be mandatory or optional and you can customize it to serve your specific purpose.

How Getting An Insurance Quote Works

An insurance quote is an estimate of your premium. Quotes are based on the specific information you provided. It is important to provide precise information to get an accurate idea of how much your insurance will cost. Quotations are estimates and can differ from the final amount presented to you by an insurer.

Yes. The insurance industry is regulated on the provincial level. Rules and regulations vary based on where you are in the country, including minimum and mandatory insurance requirements. Each province has a regulating body that oversees insurance companies and brokers.

Insurance rates can go up for a number of reasons. Companies could have been granted a rate increase by FSRAO. There could have been an increase in risk in your region. Your situation could have changed since you first received a quote. Something as simple as moving to a new address can have a big impact on how much you pay.

What Are Some Common Insurance Myths?

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation online regarding insurance. This can have a negative impact on your ability to make educated decisions about your policy. Here are some of the top industry myths you should be aware of :

  • Insurers keep changing the rules about what is and is not covered : Insurance is highly regulated. Changes cannot be made without government approval.
  • Insurers can raise premiums whenever they want : Companies must get approval from their provincial regulator in order to increase premiums. This typically happens on a quarterly basis but will not impact you until you renew.
  • Insurers make it difficult for you to file claims and receive a settlement : Insurance professionals are here to help you through the claims process.
  • Companies make big money off your premiums : Most of the money goes to paying claims, operating expenses, and taxes. A small portion is profit for insurers.
  • Insurance covers me for everything : All plans have exclusions. Be aware of what is and is not covered.

These myths are all false. Always consider the source of information when researching insurance. The Insurance Bureau of Canada is an excellent resource for insurance news and information.
