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).

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.
