“You only have one chance to get it right. Getting it wrong can be very expensive”
WHO ARE OUR ONTARIO HOME INSURANCE CUSTOMERS?
Own a home in Toronto, the GTA, or anywhere in Southern Ontario? What about 2-3 cars? A boat or motor home? Expensive collections or even bicycles? Whatever your situation, you probably find managing your house insurance to be a time-consuming, frustrating and expensive.
As if owning a home is already not complicated enough, understanding how to insure it can be daunting. Among the variety of Ontario home insurance companies, no two insurance policies are the same. Each has different coverage, limits, conditions and exclusions and of course a wide range of premiums. Getting it right should not be left to chance.
Often, it is not until something happens that the shortfall is discovered. Insure you basement for sewer back up with a $10,000 limit then finding out you have a $25,000 loss is painful. This is especially sad as the premium involved to do it properly is often modest and just a bit of advice could have prevented it. There are many pitfalls that need to be avoided.
Why not save yourself some time, some money, and let the home and auto insurance professionals at Guthrie Insurance look after all of your personal insurance needs?

Home & Auto Insurance Bundles For Ontario Residents
At Guthrie Insurance, we want to ensure you’re getting the best, most affordable premium for your house insurance in Ontario. This is why we offer home and auto insurance bundles to residents in the Ontario region, combining the two types of insurance packages together to save you time and money on your total insurance account. As most home owners also require auto insurance, combining these two policies together makes it more economical and easier to manage with just one annual anniversary date. With auto insurance being mandatory for all Ontario vehicle owners, combining these policies just makes more sense.
How Much is the Average Cost of Home Insurance in Ontario
At Guthrie Insurance we know every home is as individual and unique, as the person or family who lives there. When it comes to Ontario home insurance, trying to ascertain what is an “average” premium is immensely difficult. Consider, for example, what the likely difference in premium would be to insure a modest, 2 bedroom bungalow in Barrie, to the premium on a 10 bedroom mansion in Toronto’s Rosedale. The risks involved are at the opposite ends of the spectrum, and so are the premiums.
Which Ontario Home Insurance Companies and Brands does INSUREPLUS™ Represent?
At INSUREPLUS™ we have partnered with Canada’s leading home insurance companies. These are insurers who have a proven reputation of fairness in all of their customer dealings. Among them there is a wide variety of rating plans, payment options, discounts and eligibility requirements.
Representing leading Ontario Insurance Companies also helps ensure you benefit from trends in claims and resulting premium costs. One insurer may suffer from an adverse claims year and increase premiums. This can often be offset by having us move you to another insurer who may have had a good claims year and continues to offer highly competitive premiums. Nothing stays the same for long…especially when it comes to Ontario home insurance rates.
Guthrie Insurance is proud to represent the following preferred Canadian Insurance Companies for your Ontario home insurance needs –
Aviva Insurance CAA Insurance CHIEFTAN Insurance

Factors That Impact Home Insurance Costs in Ontario
InsuranceThere are many main factors that influence Home Insurance premiums in Ontario. In general, these factors can be divided into three main categories as follows –
The Home –
The size, age and condition. The premium on newer homes is generally less than the premiums on older homes. Older home with outdated wiring, roof, heating or plumbing will result in higher premiums as the risk of loss is higher. Bigger house? Higher replacement cost and higher premium. It only makes sense.
Security and loss prevention measures taken such as central burglar alarms or sewer back-up valves.
Your neighborhood; every neighborhood in Ontario is different. Premiums may be affected by local crime statistics, proximity to fire hall or hydrants, or areas that are prone to sewer back-ups.
The owner/insured –
Expensive jewellery? Collect sports cards? Have expensive bicycles? Do you volunteer with local community groups or your children’s minor sports leagues? Lifestyle factors and risks do affect insurance premiums if the appropriate coverage has been provided.
Other factors include claims experience, credit rating (optional with insureds permission) and sometimes even the type and number of mortgagees.
Operating a business from home? Likely not a problem if it is low risk such as tutoring piano. Repairing neighbours cars in the garage, or other higher risk business activities however could put a serious “dent” in your budget.
The Insurance Company and Policy –
Profit margins for Ontario home insurance companies is marginal and similar among all insurance companies. Intense competition keeps premiums down. Typically over 90% of premiums are paid out in claims and administrative expenses. Increasing premiums to increase profits would result in severe loss of customers and insurers won’t risk it.
Some policies are more expensive because they cover more risks.
The specific policy features, benefits, limitations, and exclusions all have an affect on insurance premiums.
Past claims made to the home; if you’re new to the home, the previous owners may have already made several claims, therefore, this will may affect the future home insurance costs.
Cosmetic factors; such as the condition of the home’s roof, the types of plumbing and electrical systems installed; are they modern and new? When was the last time they were replaced or updated?
Every situation is different and an “off the shelf” insurance policy can leave you vulnerable to an uninsured or under-insured loss costing you thousands.
These are some of the key factors affecting Ontario home insurance costs. With over 40 years of experience, Guthrie Insurance will help you ensure you receive the right type of insurance coverage, at the right premium.
Is Home Insurance Mandatory in Ontario?
Unlike other types of insurance policies, such as car insurance, home insurance in Ontario is not mandatory. If you’re a homeowner and you don’t have home insurance, it is not illegal and you are not breaking any Government Laws. However, you may be responsible under contract to make sure your home is properly insured. This is the situation when a financial institution has loaned money and placed a mortgage on your property.
Regardless of whether insurance is legally or contractually required, everyone will agree that arranging a proper insurance plan is always the best move. Going without home insurance, even for a day, could result in dire financial consequences for you or your family in the event of an uninsured loss.
