Over 40 years of experience serving the new home building industry

The New Home Warranty Insurance (Canada) Corporation (NHWIC) is Canada’s first insurance company focused solely on providing new home and renovation warranty for the homebuilding industry. 

Our commitment to the new home building industry extends from our roots that date back to 1974. Our strong history was founded by a group of top homebuilders who recognized the need to create a package of warranty protections and establish mechanisms to bolster the reputation of the homebuilding industry. The Alberta New Home Warranty Program (ANHWP) was Canada’s first home warranty provider, and has continued to be a pioneer in the industry. ANHWP has since broadened its scope to become a Group of Companies, expanding beyond Alberta’s boarders, offering the same level of expertise and service across Western Canada.

Some of the products and services provided by The Alberta New Home Warranty Group of Companies includes:

  • New Home Warranty
  • Renovation Warranty
  • Education
  • Commercial Insurance
