insurance for canada
 
i have been asked for insurance for a few festivals in canda. can any australian performers recommend a company as 'duck for cover' does not cover canada. is it the usual procedure for a festival to ask for insurance? anyone know how to get around it. cheers!!!!

Not every canadian festival requires it. Let me know if you can't find an aussie company which covers in canada. I may be able to recommend some canadian ones (I'm not sure if you need to be a Canadian resident to apply though).

thanks kyle. i will see if anyone can help. i think that most companies require you to be of local nationality.........the festival is port credit. saying must have insurance. only one asking for it. cheers buddy.

You can try contacting Flame Oz (if you know them), see which company they went through. The company I've used in the past was http://www.palcanada.com/content/view/90/45/lang,en/ They're a bit expensive though.
You're going to love Port Credit! We've performed the Buskerfest there 4 times and other events throughout the year. It's a really awesome town and they've become great friends of ours!

Hey Bruce,

There're a couple options. Once you arrive, or possibly before you get here you can get insured through Clowns Canada. That's who I got my policy through. you contact them. they send you a membership and insurance application in the same email. $150 or so. i think it does $2 million.

there are a couple other options. but that's the one i use.

looking forward to seeing you over here.

Clowns Canada is one that we've been looking into using. We've heard great things since it still covers fire and is year round for roughly the price you'd pay for a one-time fee.

thanks guys for your imput. i just got word today that you have to be a canadian resident to get inurance from clown in canada. i will research a few australian companies now. any information from some australian performers would be great. cheers.......
