Prepare for Disasters and Severe Weather

(Mazdak Moini, VP Commercial Lines & Reinsurance Aviva Canada Inc.)

Aviva Canada, one of the country’s leading property and casualty insurers, is honored to serve over three million customers across Canada and actively support the communities where we work and live.

As one of the leading insurers, we see the devastating impact of severe weather and natural disasters firsthand. According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada’s 2015 Fact Book (page 16), for the past six consecutive years, insured losses caused by large natural catastrophes have been around or over $1 billion. By comparison, insured losses averaged $400 million a year over the 25-year period from 1983 to 2008.

We are committed to preventing damage before it occurs and helping Canadians prepare for unforeseen weather events and natural disasters. That’s why we launched Plan & Protect, a free emergency preparedness app, in partnership with the Institute forCatastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR).

The app is available to all Canadians, and for every download, we’re donating $5 to the Canadian Red Cross to help communities affected by disasters*
