Easiest tenant insurance I’ve ever gotten! Usually I’m on the phone for 30 minutes and the price doesn’t match the quote but this was quick and easy!
Brilliant communication and information provision by Fatou, and in addition she presented with a delightful personality. Many, many thanks Fatou, greatly appreciated!
It was fast and easy to supply the information and to select the coverages! Great experience!
I got many online quotes prior to discovering Square One. Their website was easy to use and I liked that my quote was the actual final price which I could purchase right there online. For many other insurance providers I needed to talk to a human following the original quote and they always raised it. With Square One the quote did not go higher. They actually advised me on how it could be lower. Finally, the price was 40% less than the closest competitor. Easy to use website, fast service and a great price.

Provided below are some basic resources for those who may be new to Quebec. We’ve included some background information on the province, plus tips for getting settled after you’ve moved.
Quebec is Canada’s largest province by area, and second largest by population, with 8.5 million people calling the province home.
Quebec is unique in Canada in being the only province with a majority French-speaking population—and a huge majority at that. 94% of Quebec’s residents report knowledge of French, compared to just 52% for English; 47% of Quebecers speak French exclusively. French is Quebec’s official language, and provincial laws designate French as the first (or only) option in many instances, from advertising to government services. English speakers have a right to receive some services (like health care or social services) in English, however.
Quebec forms a major part of Canada’s economy. Quebec’s main industries include aerospace, power generation, manufacturing, and mining. Many of Canada’s largest companies are based in the province, including Bell, CN Rail, Bombardier, and Saputo.
Quebec City is the capital of the province, but Montreal is its largest city—almost half the residents of Quebec live in Greater Montreal, which includes neighbouring cities like Laval and Longueuil.
Moving is never fun, but you can make it easier on yourself with careful planning.
One thing to note about moving in Quebec: July 1 is moving day. Most residential leases in Quebec expire after June 30, so July 1 is a hectic day. Especially in Montreal, which sees thousands of residents moving in and out, signing new leases, and setting up new home insurance every July 1.
