JYC has Increased Commercial Liability Insurance Coverage to $10 Million - A Comprehensive Intro of Commercial Liability Insurance for Canadian Renovations

by JYC

In June of this year, to provide our clients with greater protection, we have increased the coverage of our commercial liability insurance from the previous $5 million to $10 million. Currently, in the entire country of Canada, the number of renovation companies with $10 million in commercial liability insurance coverage can be counted on one hand, making it a significant milestone for us. Today, we take this opportunity to explain what commercial liability insurance is and why it is crucial.


What is Commercial Liability Insurance?

In commercial renovations in Ontario, Canada, Commercial General Liability Insurance is a critical type of insurance. It provides protection for businesses to handle potential liability claims and litigation costs.

Commercial liability insurance typically covers the following aspects:

  • Third-Party Bodily Injury: If someone is injured on your premises during commercial renovations or as a result of your business activities, commercial liability insurance can provide protection. For example, if a customer slips and gets injured at your construction site, commercial liability insurance can help cover medical expenses and compensation.
  • Third-Party Property Damage: If your business activities during commercial renovations result in property damage to a third party, commercial liability insurance can provide compensation. For example, if your construction team accidentally damages a customer's property, commercial liability insurance can help cover the costs of repairs or replacements.
  • Product Liability: If you design, manufacture, or sell products during commercial renovations, and these products cause harm or property damage to consumers, commercial liability insurance can provide protection. It can help cover compensation and legal expenses.


Why is Commercial Liability Insurance Essential?

  • Legal Requirement: In Ontario, holding commercial insurance is a legal requirement. According to local regulations and building codes, commercial renovation projects need to purchase appropriate commercial insurance to ensure necessary compensation and protection in the event of accidents or losses.
  • Asset Protection: Commercial insurance can protect your business assets from losses and risks. During commercial renovations, unforeseen accidents, property damage, or other unforeseen circumstances may occur. Commercial insurance can provide protection for your renovation projects, properties, and equipment, ensuring that your investments are adequately safeguarded.
  • Third-Party Liability: Commercial insurance can also provide protection against third-party liability. Commercial renovations may involve contractors, suppliers, customers, and other third parties. If an accident leads to third-party injuries or property damage, you may face legal lawsuits and claims. Holding appropriate commercial insurance can protect you from third-party liability, including compensation and legal expenses.

Regarding the Amount of Commercial Liability Insurance

The coverage amount of insurance is determined based on the specific business, needs, risks, and budget of different companies and construction teams. Currently, as the scale of projects at JYC continues to expand, having a higher coverage amount can provide our clients with a broader scope of protection and compensation, ensuring sufficient coverage in the face of significant accidents. A $10 million commercial insurance coverage can cover higher liability risks and claim amounts compared to $5 million coverage, thus providing more comprehensive protection for large commercial renovation projects. This coverage amount can help bear higher compensation costs, legal fees, and other potential expenses, thereby alleviating the financial risks faced by businesses.
