About Unclaimed Property

Unclaimed property is money held by Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada (Old Republic Canada) which may be payable to you under the terms of an insurance contract, including but not limited to claim payments, policy pay outs, premium refunds and commissions. This money may be unclaimed for various reasons, such as when there has been a change of address or contact information and we have been unable to locate the owner.
