A Glance at Small Business in Ontario

Whether you’ve just started a business or you’ve been running your company for years, being an entrepreneur is hard. But finding the right small business liability insurance in Ontario doesn’t have to be.

As one of Canada’s most densely populated provinces, Ontario is home to over 14.5M people. There are more than 50 cities located in the region, including the provincial capital of Toronto and the national capital of Ottawa. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Ontario offers some of the most culturally diverse and bustling professional locales in the world.

As the second largest province in Canada, Ontario covers more than 1M square kilometres. It also provides more than half of the nation’s small business operations, in conjunction with Quebec.

While your business journey may take you to Northern Ontario cities like Thunder Bay or Sault Ste. Marie, the vast majority of the province’s residents live and work along the southern shores of the Great Lakes.

Even though manufacturing hubs like Hamilton and Toronto make Ontario one of Canada’s larger providers, it’s the services sector that represents the most opportunities and growth for entrepreneurs.

As the biggest part of Ontario’s economy, the province’s services sector provides employment for millions of Canadians. It includes a wide variety of industries, from financial services to arts and culture. In the Greater Toronto Area alone, you can also find tech startups and pharmaceutical operations, among many others.

Whether your venture is small or large, APOLLO has you covered with business liability insurance in Ontario.

Small Business Basics

Interpreting insurance

From FAQs to COIs, we have the answers to help keep it clear.

Insurance is a critical component to the survival and success of your business. No matter your industry or size, business insurance provides financial coverage for the costs that surface with unforeseen events—anything from defective products to third-party damage. It can get complicated, so we help you simplify it with simple policy procedures and easy-to-get quotes.

Business insurance protects business owners from losses due to unforeseen events during day-to-day operations. While there are many types of insurance products available for business owners, the coverage you need is determined by many factors: industry, revenue, size, etc. That’s why we customize our coverage to meet your unique needs.

A COI is a statement of coverage that we provide to you. It’s a summary that verifies that your business is, in fact, insured.
 
You may receive a request from a potential client for a COI as a condition of doing business with you. It’s simply proof that your business can cover the cost of a liability claim.

A Business Owner’s Policy is a great option for small business owners, since it combines the multiple coverages needed to protect against all major risks at an affordable package. This helps mitigate small business insurance costs by bundling multiple types of insurance together and selling them at a cheaper premium.
 
While there are multiple different factors involved, BOPs are typically only available to small to mid range businesses with less than 100 employees making less than a certain amount of revenue.

A BOP typically protects small businesses by bundling together four types of general insurance all for one reduced price:

 
Commercial Property Insurance
While there are multiple different factors involved, BOPs are typically only available to small to mid range businesses with less than 100 employees making less than a certain amount of revenue.
 
Business Interruption Insurance
Protects you and your employees against potential lost wages in the case of a disaster halting your business.
 
Crime Insurance
Covers your business in the event of being targeted by theft or any other fraudulent activity.
 
General Liability Insurance
Mitigates losses in the event of a lawsuit brought against your company due to bodily harm to an employee or a client during the course of business, regardless of whether or not you’re at fault.
 
While a Business Owner’s Policy is a great option for general coverage of property and casualty insurance for small businesses, it’s important to know that it doesn’t include certain types of insurance, including: commercial auto insurance, workers compensation insurance or professional liability insurance.
 
Often only needed by larger businesses, professional liability insurance (also known as errors and omissions) protects against claims of negligence, misrepresentation or imprecise advice.

There’s lots of different factors at play that will affect the cost of your small business insurance, making your quote as unique as your business itself. And while it all depends on what different types of insurance you need, small business owners in Canada can expect to spend about $500 annually on insurance.
