The Manitoba School Boards Association and the School Division recommends all parents consider Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada’s Student Accident Insurance, which provides 24 hour coverage for all accidents at school, home or play.
The Student Accident Insurance Program provides coverage for medical, dental, disability or accidental death and dismemberment as a result of an accident. Protection is also provided for dental damage due to an accident, fracture benefits, and other important coverages, which are not Government Insurable Health Services.
Some parents/guardians may participate in an Employee Benefits and Group Dental Plan, but many of these plans are limited in areas. We ask that you compare them to make sure you have the coverage you require.
