Home insurance in Nova Scotia

Save up to 25% on home insurance in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia, one of the four Atlantic provinces of Canada, is located on the east coast and home to nearly 1 million people. The province is famous for its high tides at the Bay of Fundy, its seafood (lobster), and blueberries! Why Blueberries? Because the region has the perfect growing conditions for wild blueberries with its climatic conditions. Nova Scotia has over 13,000 km of coastline, so you’re always near the ocean. Go to Peggy’s Cove to see the infamous lighthouses photographed each year - they have approx 150 left dotting the coastline. Or, drive along the Cabot Trail for a scenic drive, with close to 300km of highway, it goes through the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and offers jaw-dropping coastal views. Nova Scotia has cheap housing and little traffic, but a tough job market. They have lower minimum wage and higher taxes. But, the community, scenery, and ocean make it one of the best places to live!

If you're looking for the best home insurance in Nova Scotia, you should start by getting quotes from the Surex team! At Surex, we work with the top Canadian home insurance companies; this gives you access to the most competitive and affordable home insurance quotes on the market.

The cost typically depends on a number of factors including the construction of the home, updates to heating, electrical, plumbing, and roofing, chances of water damage, prior claims, and more. It’s best to budget approximately $800-2600 annually for home insurance costs, but again this will vary from person to person.

There are four basic types of home insurance you can get:

Comprehensive: This provides the most coverage and is the most expensive. It covers your home and its contents against all perils (except the ones specifically excluded from your insurance policy)

Basic or Named Perils - This coverage insures your home, contents and property for perils that are specifically named in your policy

Broad: This is coverage that is right in between a standard insurance policy and comprehensive, covering your home against all risks (minus exclusions) and coverage for your contents against any named risks.

No frills: This provides minimal coverage, and is the cheapest. It is usually for homes that don't meet underwriting standards (doesn't meet normal insurance standards).

And of course, if you feel you need more coverage you can inquire about extra coverages (or endorsements) that will cover certain risks that can affect your area such as:

  • Overland flooding
  • Windstorm damage
  • Sewer backup

A licensed insurance broker (also known as an advisor) can offer home insurance quotes for you in Nova Scotia. If you contact the best insurance broker channel they can provide you with more than one option, so you can see comparables in price and the best insurance coverage options!

The cheapest home insurance provider depends on how your situation fits into the formula companies create to evaluate policyholders. Compare insurance companies and quotes with Surex to get the cheapest price on home insurance and the best insurance coverage for your situation.
