If you are the principal unpaid housekeeper in your home and are unable to perform household duties after being injured in an accident, Section B coverage would provide you with a weekly benefit of $100 for up to 52 weeks.
In Co-operators General Insurance v. Boucher,  NSJ No. 29 (CA), the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal endorsed the view that Section B coverage extends to “the provision of services by such non-professional persons as homemakers”. In order to be successful in their claim, the claimant must demonstrate sufficient evidence to prove the necessity of obtaining assistance for housekeeping tasks.
