Mass Evacuation/Prohibited Access Update

We are here to help our policyholders affected by the Fort McMurray region wildfires recover from a loss involving their premises.

In order to further assist policyholders in the Fort McMurray region who are unable to return home, Wawanesa Insurance will be extending the maximum time of coverage for Additional Living Expenses arising from “Prohibited Access” to June 15th, 2016. You will now be able to claim for Additional Living Expenses incurred during the period of time in which access to your premises is prohibited by Civil Authority/Mass Evacuation Order, subject until June 15th, 2016. Coverage for Fair Rental Value loss will remain subject to the maximum two week time frame outlined in your Policy.

No deductible applies to Prohibited Access coverage.

Additional Living Expenses include, but are not limited to, temporary accommodations, restaurant meals, kenneling costs for pets, laundry, extra mileage, etc. Please ensure that you keep all original receipts for any of these types of expenses that you incur, in order to present them as part of your claim.

You are not insured for any claim arising from evacuation resulting from losses excluded under Section I – Loss or Damage Not Insured.

We will continue to post notices and updates on the following channels:
