ENCON Launches New Sports, Leisure and Recreation Program

Ottawa, ON (Aug. 4, 2016) – ENCON Group Inc., a leading managing general agent in Canada, is pleased to announce the launch of a new Sports, Leisure and Recreation program that protects owners and operators against a variety of liability risks, from bodily injury and property damage to accusations of negligence and faulty equipment.

“As there is a variety of Sports, Leisure and Recreation products in the marketplace, it is critical that businesses examine the coverages being offered to ensure that they suit their needs and don’t specifically exclude any activities or individuals with risk exposures,” said J.D. Farquhar, Assistant Vice-President, Alternative Insurance Market, ENCON. “For instance, many policies have an injury to participants exclusion that seriously restricts coverage for owners and operators.”

ENCON’s Sports, Leisure and Recreation program provides a broad range of coverage for fairs and festivals; family/tourist attractions; fitness instructors; gaming; outfitters and guides; resorts and campgrounds; special events; sports and entertainment facilities; sports, leisure and summer camps; theatre and performing arts centres; and zoos and aquariums. Lines of coverage include:

  • Commercial General Liability
  • Commercial Umbrella Liability
  • Property Insurance
  • Directors and Officers Liability
  • Errors and Omissions
