    Why You Need Tenant Insurance If You're Renting

    Did you know that nearly 50% of renters in Canada don't have tenant's insurance? If you are renting, you may think that your landlord's insurance covers your apartment, condo, or home. While this is true, your landlord's insurance only covers the structure, not your belongings.
