Who is a registered participant?

All active members, employees, officers, directors, officials, referees, players, coaches, managers, volunteers, medical staff, and auxiliary workers whom register with a member organization.



The practices and league matches of registered clubs are the only competitions considered sanctioned and insured by default when all athletes, team management and staff and all participants (volunteers, organizing committee / board of directors) are registered within the current membership year with a member organization. Other Provincial Union sanctioned or authorized activities and events held by member organizations such as exhibition games, try rugby events, tournaments, winter training, camps or clinics, programs or academies, seminars, tours and fundraisers may also have the insurance extended to them when approval is granted by Rugby Canada and one's Provincial Union.

 Any other event may seek sanctioning by an authorized representative of a member organization and thus the National Insurance Program can be extended with the proper application being filled out. Please click the below areas for more information.
