Insurance Back to Top

Commercial General Liability (July 1 - June 30)

Alpine Canada Commercial General Liability (CGL) coverage is available to all levels of membership (excluding community members) while performing sport-related duties. An Alpine Canada/provincial alpine association one time or seasonal membership waiver form must be signed by the member and filed with the provincial alpine association. Alpine Canada and the provincial alpine association activate coverage upon signing the membership and waiver form and expect that forms will be filed with the provincial alpine association as soon as possible following events. The CGL policy protects against the risk of sums Alpine Canada may become legally obligated to pay as the result of bodily injury and/or property damage caused participating in club/provincial alpine association or Alpine Canada activities. The coverage includes the cost of investigating, defending and paying for any claim for injury or damage attributed to negligence on the part of the club/provincial alpine association or Alpine Canada or an authorized person acting on behalf of the club/provincial alpine association or Alpine Canada.
This CGL insurance also extends to dryland training. We have been notified that dryland activities are covered for all members provided they (coaches and participants) are all currently registered, and the group is engaged in a supervised participation program, with terrain matched to ability level – the same as it is on snow training.

Sport Accident Insurance (July 1 - June 30)

Alpine Canada's Sport Accident Insurance Policy (SAIP) is offered as a third tier of insurance coverage to Alpine Canada members. SAIP coverage and eligibility is best outlined in the policy quick sheet found at this url: SAIP coverage is required by FIS for all FIS-carded members to compete in FIS competitions (ICR 212.4). SAIP coverage is required by Alpine Canada of any members traveling to compete or train outside of North America.
