Why General Liability Insurance?

Because of your operations, or actions, you are open or possible suit from Third Parties.  You may not be liable but you will need to be defended in court.  A Liability policy pays for this defense as well as any costs found against you.  Legal fees can be very expensive and this can be an affordable way to have them covered.  This policy covers your legal liability for bodily injury to or damage to property of others such as spectators, passers-by, property owners and others resulting from your activities. In addition your legal liability for injury to participants is covered.


Personal Insurance

Athletics Alberta has partnered with Chubb and Combined Company of Canada to offer our members Personal Insurance.

The Combined Company of Canada is offering our members customizable insurance plans that start as low as $14/month. This insurance will help individuals, families and employers through challenging times by paying cash benefits for covered accidents and illnesses — essentially the funds will help you with your everyday costs while you get back on your feet after an accident or illness.  

Is this an alternative to CAIP?

Yes. The Combined Company of Canada will protect you 24/7, 365 days per incident all across Canada and the US. Its insurance plans are customizable to suit your specific needs.
