Edmonton, Alberta — Following the massive hailstorm in Calgary, Ont., over 20,000 vehicle claims were reported to insurers, says a report by the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC).
To help the community cope with the overwhelming amount of insurance claims IBC has deployed its virtual Community Assistance Mobile Pavilion (CAMP).
IBC offers CAMP to disaster sites that have significant insured damage. Canadians who are suddenly forced to cope with a damaging event can access insurance-related information through the IBC program.
“Following the devastating hailstorm, we want to ensure that consumers know we are here to help,” said Celyeste Power, Vice-President, Western, IBC. “Severe weather events like these are not only costly but cause significant turmoil and stress for homeowners. IBC and insurers are ready to assist residents and businesses that have suffered damage.”
