The easiest way to get tenant insurance

If you’ve ever rented a home before, you know how much of a pain it is to get tenant insurance. You’ve spent countless hours searching online for what you need or waiting on the phone to speak with the insurance company just to get an automated phone message. The whole day went by, and there was no progress on your search. You thought, ‘there’s got to be a better way’!

We listened to you and launched a product on Homicity that simplifies the tenant insurance process from start to finish to get what you need all in one place.

So, without further ado, we are proud to launch tenants’ insurance in partnership with Gore Mutual (one of Canada’s oldest insurance Mutuals) and in conjunction with BrokerLift (a Toronto based insurtech) to bring this experience down from many calls and searches to just a few clicks.

Curious? This is how it works:


Step 1: Answer a few questions

To start you need to tell us a bit about yourself and the property you are currently renting. We will ask you about your postal code, the type of home, the age of the building, and more.

If you don’t know some of these answers, don’t stress. Ask your landlord!


Step 2: Get Quotes

You will instantly get coverage options from our partners. If need you need a more personalized option, you can even customize your package.


Step 3: Pick your coverage

Now, it’s time to compare. Check the features and estimated price each option offers. Think about which one works best for you.


Step 4: Get your policy

Click ‘select’ on your preferred option and voila! You got your tenant insurance without ripping your hair out. Easy, right?
