Get a tenant insurance quote for as little as $12/month

Protecting your stuff is important, but so is your free time. Don’t worry! A personalized tenant insurance quote can be yours in 5 minutes. That’s less time than you spend waiting in line for coffee.

Complete protection for your contents and accidental damage to your landlord’s property

The best way to protect the things you love

Protect yourself and your belongings with Canada’s first customizable tenant insurance policy. With Square One, you choose your limits, your coverages, and your deductible. Why pay to insure stuff you don’t own?

Common property that everyone has – like electronics, clothes, and furniture – is always protected. The policies offered by Square One are fully comprehensive and protect against major types of loss, including theft, fire, and even accidental damage. Forgot your phone at the coffee shop? Protected. Spilled tea all over your laptop? Protected. Dropped your smart watch into the bathtub? Yup, that’s protected, too.

The best part? Policies start from just $12/month. Keep reading to learn more about our unique approach.

Digital platform

With Square One, you can get a quote, buy a policy and even submit a claim – all online, from the comfort of your own home.

Superior protection

All policies from Square One are comprehensive (all-risk). This represents the highest level of protection currently available in Canada. We make it easy for you to protect your things from common perils (such as water damage and theft). And, we protect your belongings on a replacement cost basis, which means you’re covered for the full cost of replacing your stolen or damaged stuff.

Liability coverage included

Tenant insurance policies from Square One also protect against accidental personal and property damage to others. So, whether your neighbour slips on your porch or you hit a stranger with your golf ball on vacation, you can rest assured that Square One has you covered.

Personalized coverage

All policies protect most common personal property items including laptops, smartphones and furniture. If you own specialty property (such as bicycles or fine arts) you can also add coverage to your policy. That way, you only pay to insure what you actually own. And, with standard deductible options ranging from $250 to $5,000, you’ll build the policy that fits your life.

Need to make a claim?

Making a claim with Square One is easy. In fact, most of the process can be done online. You’ll get your own dedicated adjuster to work with you from start to finish to make sure you’re back on your feet in no time. And, Square One pays out on 90% of all claims submitted in Canada.

Low-maintenance

We’re all about making things easy for you. You can choose to pay monthly or annually, and you can cancel your policy any time with no penalty (though we’re pretty sure you won’t want to). If you move, your policy moves with you. If you buy a home someday, switching to a homeowner’s policy is a breeze.

It only takes 5 minutes
