Attention Teachers! We’re looking for nominations for our Read to Ride program this fall.

If you are a 2nd or 3rd grade-teacher in Ontario, you can nominate your class for a chance to participate. The Read to Ride program is also available to split classes, including a 1/2 split, 2/3 split, or 3/4 split.

Growing Cannabis & Your Home Insurance

Growing Cannabis & Your Home Insurance

In October 2018, Canada became one of the first countries in the world to legalize marijuana for both medicinal and recreational purposes. In addition to the legalization, households are now permitted to grow up to four cannabis plants.

Many people know that smoking – whether cigarettes or marijuana – will impact the cost of your Life Insurance, but did you know that your Home Insurance could also be impacted if you grow your own cannabis? Here’s how.

Personal and Business Cyber Insurance

Personal & Business Cyber Insurance

At this very moment, your business is 9 times more likely to be hacked than have a fire.

Recently, one of our commercial business clients purchased a CyberBoxx Cyber Insurance policy with us, which ended up saving their business from a malware attack.

We wanted to share their story to help other business owners better understand the value that Cyber Insurance can bring to your organization. *Names have been edited for privacy purposes*

In the fall of 2021, ABC purchased a Cyberboxx 1-Star Membership; the base cyber package and our most affordable coverage option. The Cyberboxx team ran a scan on ABC’s website as part of the package and found that malware had already been installed on their website.

We connected the Cyberboxx team with ABC, and they were able to talk the company through fixing the problem, preventing a potential breach.

If you’d like to learn more about Business Cyber Insurance or view plan options, click here.

We’ve also created a landing page where you can quote, bind, and issue your own Personal Cyber Insurance policy to protect your family against Cyber Attacks, Extortion, Fraud, Data Breach, and Cyber Bullying.
