The price of construction materials has skyrocketed since the beginning of COVID, increasing the cost to rebuild homes and businesses. This directly affects the amount of insurance purchased by consumers, which is an issue both for brokers and their clients.

Join Greg McCutcheon, President, Opta Information Intelligence, as he takes you through their May 2021 Report, "Reconstruction Cost Updates Canada" and addresses FAQ such as:

     1. How are the evaluation tools being adjusted to take these increases into account?
     2. Do you see this as a long or short term trend?
     3. How do you factor the increase on insurance to value when home renovations have occurred?
     4. Is there any difference between how commercial occupancy construction is being affected vs residential construction?
     5. What would be your best advice for brokers to ensure the rebuilding limit is as accurate as possible?

Do you have other questions you'd like Mr. McCutcheon to answer? Please submit your questions ahead of time at 

*Please note that, due to time constraints, it may not be possible to answer all submitted questions.
