New Insurance Program for AA Groups

Ottawa Area Intergroup has been successful in negotiating a Group Insurance Program for AA Groups which are part of Ottawa Area Intergroup, and we are off to a good start. Several Groups have already signed up and have saved significant money, which can now be used for other things, such as increasing donations to other levels of AA!

Many churches and other facilities require that a group provide proof of insurance coverage in order to hold their meetings.

Some facilities may offer to add your group as an additional insured on their policy in return for a fee. If this is the case, request a certificate showing that they have done so. But be aware that even if you have been provided coverage this way, it is not portable (if you move your meeting to another location, you can’t take it with you).

Coverage under this Ottawa Area Intergroup Program is fully portable, and belongs to the individual group.

The Annual Premium FOR $1,000,000 is $50. Coverage provided is as follows:

Commercial General Liability, including: Deductible Limit
1. Bodily Injury & Property Damage $1,000 $1,000,000 per occurrence/ $1,000,000 aggregate limit
2. Personal Injury $1,000,000
3. Medical Expenses $10,000
4. Tenants Legal Liability $1,000 $500,000

The Annual Premium for $2,000,000 is $100.

8% Provincial Sales Tax applies, so the payment for $1,000,000 if $54 and for $2,000,000 is $108.

COVERAGE DOES NOT BEGIN UNTIL PAYMENT AND APPLICATION HAVE BEEN RECEIVED BY THE INSURER. PLEASE RETURN THE APPLICATION FILLED OUT WITH YOUR CHEQUE, PAYABLE TO THE CO-OPERATORS GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY, TO:
