Volunteer Insurance

The IBAA has worked with Volunteer Alberta and other provincial volunteer boards to develop a website which explains concerns regarding acting as a volunteer and your protection needed by insurance.

If you are a team leader then you could be open to a complaint of discrimination. If you handle money then you could have issues regarding how you spent the money or even how it was invested for the organization. You also could be held responsible if a person on your team was injured during the course of their volunteer work.

Some insurers will include volunteer work in the personal liability section of your property policy. Discuss your specific situation with your volunteer organization . Your insurance adviser should be consulted to confirm your personal liability coverage.
