Your home insurance can be cancelled by you at anytime, with written notice. the insurance companies however have a much harder time cancelling then you do. Here in Ontario they need to give you 15 days after written notice by registered letter or 5 days notice after hand delivered and they cannot cancel you for no reason as well, they need a good reason such as you do not meet underwriting criteria or misrepresentation, non-payment. Not much they can cancel you for. More information on your situation is needed to properly answer.

If your previous home insurance policy was cancelled for non-payment, the company you were insured with may choose not to reinstate the policy depending on your history with the company. While this company does not have to reinstate your policy, you will be able to bind insurance with another provider. If this company asks if you have been cancelled previously for non-payment, answer honestly. This will not disqualify you for obtaining insurance, however it may disqualify you from receiving a continuous coverage discount if they offer it.
