SSQ Insurance partners with Stanley Security to support the prevention efforts of its home insurance customers

SSQ Insurance now offers Stanley Security prevention services to its home insurance customers. Specializing in electronic security systems, Stanley Security was selected based on the reliability of its service and its distinctive offer for insured customers.

A proper security system installation can prevent or reduce loss in the event of fire, intrusion and water damage. Through this new partnership, SSQ Insurance customers who choose to equip their home with an alarm system or a water leak prevention system benefit from:

  • Preferential rates on Stanley Security installation and service fees
  • discount on home insurance premiums from SSQ Insurance

"We wanted to offer the finest prevention systems on the market to ensure our customers’ peace of mind. We firmly believe that prevention is an effective way to reduce claims. Stanley Security is a partner of choice in this process," said Eric Trudel, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Product Management at SSQ Insurance.

Prevention is especially important because water damage is the leading cause of home insurance claims in Quebec and represents 50% of the total cost of claims1. A system for detecting and stopping leaks will automatically shut off the water supply, significantly reducing potential damage in one of the risk areas of a home.
