home insurance customers love and trust
4.7 out of 5. That's how customers rate Square One Insurance Services after writing 40,188 reviews. And with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, people clearly love the way we're changing home insurance.
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. Quotes and policies are managed through your online account, but if you need help, expert assistance from one of our licensed insurance agents is just a webchat or phone call away.
All policies from Square One represent the highest level of protection currently available in Canada. We make it easy for you to protect your home against common perils (such as water damage and theft) and we even cover the costs of rebuilding your home to meet the latest bylaw or code changes.
Guaranteed building replacement coverage
Get the peace of mind you deserve. Simply insure your home to Square One’s suggested limit and, if you experience a loss, we’ll rebuild your home, even if the cost of doing so exceeds your limit of insurance.
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.

I would like to thank our Claims Adjuster, Brad Rotto, for all the hard work he has done while working on our claim. Our unit flooded, and there was a lot of damage done by the flood. However, Brad was very helpful, replying immediately to any question we had (and we had many!), arranging for reimbursements right away and making the entire process uncomplicated and easy to understand. It has been a real pleasure working with Brad. This was one of the rare instances when the reality exceeded the expectations. Thank you, Brad, for the impeccable service and the support received throughout!
I have bought several home insurance policies over the years. Square One was the last and has been the best. I got my house insurance with them for a few years, and now for an apartment that I am buying. You do not need to do any shopping around, and you do not go wrong if you come here directly for a great customer service experience, great coverages, at low price.
Square One insurance is so easy! You can go back and change whatever you like, whenever you like. Very easy to read, no mumbo jumbo that you can’t understand, it’s great, I love it! Thank you Square One, it’s good to know you have my back.
I decided to switch to Square One for our home insurance needs. I love how I can modify my coverage online to see the effect it will have on my premium prior to making the changes. Everything seems so out in the open and the website and quote pages are very user-friendly. Joyce F. was excellent in helping me set up our new policy! She was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient in dealing with all my questions. She got back to me every time she said she would.
Needed to find a new insurance provider as the one I'd been using for years raised premiums by a huge amount for absolutely no reason and with no explanation. So I jumped online and found Square One. The quote process was quick, easy and clear. When I had a question I asked for an agent to call me and they were very prompt in meeting the determined callback time. The chatbot is helpful as well. My quote was significantly less expensive and I have better coverage. I'm already telling all my friends about Square One.
I know only what I've had to learn about home insurance and it is always a daunting process. I felt motivated at 12:55 am to finally go to Google and fight through a quote, and at 1:08 am I got the confirmation email of my new policy. I feel more confident in than any time I've tried to keep up with someone on the phone. The expert opinion line was so appreciated, and it was remarkably easy to customize a policy that will let me sleep easier, starting tonight!
After obtaining quotes from 5+ insurance providers I decided to go with Square One for a simple reason: they offered the coverage I wanted (and then some) for the best price out there. I needed to set up a call to finalize my policy and Carla Campbell was prompt, knowledgeable and courteous. Nobody should ever be excited about insurance, but right now I am.
Square One Insurance: Where service, pricing and trust meet. Excellent customer support every time, no waiting. The best price I have ever gotten for home insurance. Hunter, who helped me today, was terrific. It is nice to get off the phone and it has all gone perfectly. I'm so glad I made the switch to a company that knows what it is doing! Square One is that company. Ten stars!
I was very satisfied with the outcome of my claim and the support received throughout. My apartment flooded when a radiator cracked. We had to leave for 9 days and many personal belongings were destroyed. This was the first time I'd ever needed to make any type of insurance claim, and I expected the worst. However, Lisa was very helpful, arranging for reimbursement for accommodations right away and helped me to recoup on the content losses from the flood. I would recommend using Square One for renters insurance.
I had to update my home insurance as we added a garage and an all-season gazebo to our house. Instead of being on the phone with an agent I could do the whole process through my online account. It took me not even 10 minutes and was so easy! I have referred Square One already several times because of their fair pricing and great online presence. I am just glad I have found them.
How are claims handled?
The insurance industry doesn't have the greatest reputation when it comes to claims. Many people fear their insurer will go to any length possible to avoid paying claims. At Square One, we’re different. We're there when you need us most.
How different? Legal jargon can be confusing, so we've created a transparency page to translate the legal language of your policy into plain English.
We're committed to changing how you think of insurance. We'll make sure your claim is handled quickly and fairly.See Our Transparency Page
