Rental Insurance

Insurance is one way of managing the risks related to accidents and disasters that can and do happen. If you aren’t adequately insured, then it could leave you or your organization in financial ruin. When you buy insurance, you transfer the cost of a potential loss to the insurance company in exchange for a fee, known as the premium.

Why do I need  Liability Insurance?

If you are hosting an event at the Tanglewood Park Community Centre then the City of Ottawa strongly encourages that your event be insured, and in some cases requires you to maintain  liability coverage.  Because of your operations, or actions, you are open for possible suit from Third Parties. You may not be liable, but you will need to be defended in court. A liability policy pays for this defence as well as any costs found against you. Liability insurance insures the legal liability for bodily injury or damage to property of others resulting from your INSURED activity.  Note:  A sub-contractor, vendor or exhibitor IS NOT covered under your City of Ottawa Facility User Group Liability policy.

The Bottom Line…

If something is damaged or disappears as a result of your event then the Permit Holder or their Insurance Company is expected to pay the full cost of repairs or replacement.

If someone is injured as a result of your event then the Permit Holder or their Insurance Company is expected to pay the full cost of any claims and/or Lawsuits.
