March 11th, 2024 – Homeowners in Orangeville now have access to optional service plans for water and sewer service lines on their property. A new, voluntary program is available through Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) for residents who do not have similar coverage that may be available through their home insurance provider.

Homeowners will soon receive information in the mail about the program and available service plans. There is no obligation to sign up for a plan – participation in the program is voluntary and is being offered as a convenience for residents. The mailings are administered by SLWC but includes the Town of Orangeville’s logo to indicate that the mailing is legitimate and that there is a partnership in place between the Town of Orangeville and SLWC.

“We want to be sure that residents understand their responsibility to maintain and repair their service lines before an issue arises,” said Tim Kocialek, Orangeville’s General Manager of Infrastructure Services.” These repairs are not typically covered under standard homeowner’s insurance or by the Town of Orangeville.”

The program is provided at no cost to the Town of Orangeville and no public funds are used to promote or administer it.

“A SLWC service plan is a smart way for homeowners to prepare for a home emergency. These plans take the worry, inconvenience and financial burden out of the repair,” said Mike Van Horne, General Manager, Service Line Warranties of Canada. “Orangeville homeowners with a plan can call for service 24/7, and they get peace of mind that they won’t be financially responsible for a covered home repair emergency.”

Homeowners in over 70 Ontario municipalities now have access to SLWC service repair plans. Since the SLWC program began in 2014, homeowners have saved more than $8 million in repair expenses. Orangeville homeowners with questions or who wish to receive more information about SLWC or the plans available to residents can call 1-844-616-8444 or visit
