IBC has been in discussions with Yvon Boivin of the Coalition Proprio-Béton since last fall. At that time, some 15 members of the Coalition had seen their home insurance policies cancelled. IBC interceded with its members and did everything it could to resolve the situation.
“Individuals who are dealing with pyrrhotite must inform their insurer about the issue. If they consequently experience a problem or have trouble getting insurance, we ask that they contact our Insurance Information Centre agents at 1-877-288-4321”, noted Line Crevier, Supervisor, Technical Affairs and Information Centre, at IBC.
IBC would like to point out that the large majority of insurance companies signed an agreement nearly 15 years ago to provide access to home insurance, under which insurers accept to guarantee access to home insurance under pre-defined conditions.
