Director’s Liability & Event Insurance

Non-Profit Insurance Program

One of the benefits of membership in Arts BC is access to low-cost insurance. Arts BC’s Insurance Program was created to make it easier and more affordable for non-profit arts organizations to get insured. In partnership with Shaw Sabey & Associates Ltd., our 30+ years’ experience and group-buying power has helped us negotiate some of the best coverage and lowest rates in Canada.

The following insurance coverages are available at reduced rates to Arts BC non-profit members:

  • Commercial General Liability;
  • Directors & Officers Liability;
  • Contents of Every Description (including Fine Arts);
  • Crime (including Employee Dishonesty);
  • Cyber;
  • Volunteer Accident.

Commercial General Liability coverage protects an organization against claims brought by third parties who are injured or suffer property damage while on the organization’s premises or while attending an organization’s event at another venue and caused by the negligence of an organization’s staff, board members or volunteers.

Directors and Officers Liability coverage protects directors and officers against claims for damages arising from negligence in financial procedures and reporting, breach of contract, actions that jeopardize an organization’s non-profit status, wrongful employment practices, etc.

The program provides optimum coverage at competitive premiums.
