The sports world in Canada is vast, diverse and complex. Both amateur and professional organizations operate on the same playing field but with truly different requirements when it comes to insuring their people, their athletes, and their assets.

Amateur sports and leisure organizations have a high dependency on volunteers. It is therefore critical that volunteers, as well as athletes, be properly insured by their governing bodies.

The issues facing professional sports are very different. Player contracts, high salaries, contract guarantees, cross-border trades, large expensive venues, high numbers of attendees at games, sales of alcohol and food to spectators; all impact pro teams. The cost of both the coverage and the management of claims are both critical elements to the financial planning process affecting all teams and leagues.

The international component is also a very important aspect of competing at both amateur and pro levels. Out-of-country exposures due to illness, accident and liabilities are more acute today than ever before. The threat of terrorist acts in foreign countries is very real and must be addressed.
