Protect your kids—and your finances
Each year, many of our families spend thousands of dollars when their children are injured at school, on field trips or at home. For pennies a day, this can all be avoided.
To help protect your family, the Peel board has arranged to have student accident insurance available exclusively through Old Republic Insurance Company. This program offers a variety of plans and benefits at affordable prices.
The coverage can include:
- dental expenses, and future costs (resulting from an accident)
- total and permanent disability
- paralysis/loss of use of limbs
- special disability benefits
- ambulance fees
The Peel District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities—this includes extracurricular sports. If a student is injured, parents are responsible for any costs not covered by provincial health care or their employer's health care plan. Please check with your provider regarding your coverage.
The provincial health care system does not cover costs which are commonly related to accidents including dental work, ambulance fees, casts and crutches, and physiotherapy. All of these are covered by Old Republic Life’s student accident insurance plan.
It is strongly recommended that all families consider this coverage, especially if your child participates in extracurricular activities. Annual plans, which provide 24 hours a day, 365 days a year coverage. The insurance agreement is between you and Old Republic Insurance Company.
