Preventing theft

Put a Stop to Break-Ins. By taking specific measures, you can reduce the risk of a break-in in your home.

Prevention tips

  • Install an alarm system. It is one of the most efficient methods of deterring thieves. And you may save on your home insurance.
  • Consider connecting your alarm system to a monitoring centre.
  • Always lock your doors, even if you only go out for a few minutes.
  • Make sure your home is well-lit. A timer on the outdoor lights gives the impression there is always someone at home.
  • If you go away for several days, ask a neighbor or friend to drop by your home to pick up the mail and the newspaper.
  • Protect easy-to-access windows. Block horizontal sliding windows with a piece of wood, for example.

In case of a loss

In the event of a theft, call a claims advisor to determine what needs to be done and start the claims process.

Finally, remember that an inventory of your belongings can be very helpful. Take the time to make this list so that in the event of a claim you're prepared.
