CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE REQUESTS

Throughout the season a Rugby club may be asked to demonstrate proof of their insurance coverage to rent a facility or participate in an event.  A Certificate of Insurance is used by the insurance company to the party making the request.  This is usually a facility, municipality, school board or for a tour.  A Certificate of Insurance offers proof that the group using the facility is covered by a policy in the event of an injury or other accident.


In order to provide a Certificate of Insurance to the party requesting one from your club, you must complete the appropriate Insurance Request Online Form.  A link to the online form is located below.

Please send your fully completed certificate request form to your provincial union office.


The only people who are covered by the National Insurance Program are those individuals registered as participants with their member Rugby Clubs (players, match officials, medical staff, named volunteers).  A facility or individual may be added to the policy as “Additional Insured” for a specified event, and that event only.


A Certificate of Insurance will only be valid for sanctioned events. Should an event/competition/tour take place which is not sanctioned, the National Insurance Program will not respond to a claim associated with a non-sanctioned activity.
