Across Canada, natural catastrophes (excluding fire) have
cost $33 billion in insured damages since 1998. In 2022 severe weather in
Atlantic Canada alone resulted in $865 million in insured damages. The trend is clear: Canada
is experiencing more and bigger floods, wildfires and other natural – all
influenced by climate change – costing billions of dollars in property damage
and putting lives at risk.
Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) and its members are
working to prepare our communities now from ever increasing severe weather
events, like floods and wildfire. This includes promoting nature-based solutions
and working with governments to implement a national high-risk flood insurance
program and adaptation strategy to protect people and infrastructure from the
dangers of a warming climate.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify trends in extreme weather losses globally and
- Identify the economic impact of such losses
- Describe current
initiatives to build resilience to wind and water losses
- Communicate with
customers and clients about wind and water risk, and determine their coverage
Everyone in the industry will find value in
understanding these changes to the climate in Canada.
- Brokers will benefit by enhancing their communication to
clients at the moment of risk assessment, price or claim.
- Underwriters will
increase their risk management perspective for positive rate determination.
Adjusters will have a deeper understanding of the statistics behind the
catastrophic weather losses that they deal with.
