  • Professional Liability Insurance

    As a mediator, you’re an expert in conflict resolution and how to best navigate emotionally charged situations.

That’s why we’re offering a nuanced, industry-leading Professional Liability Insurance program with tailored and affordable solutions exclusively available to members of the Ontario Association for Family Mediation. Professional Liability Insurance to protect you from allegations of negligence and legal costs accumulated in the defense of a subsequent civil suit.

    Our bundled offering includes:

    • Funds for defence costs if you are accused of abuse and found not guilty;
    • Legal defence costs for any complaints filed against you to the College of Paramedics;

    • FAQ

      • 1. What is Professional Liability Insurance and why do I need it?

        Professional Liability Insurance protects you in the event a third party (ie client) makes a claim against you or your practice arising out your professional service as a family mediator. The policy will respond to liability from negligence while rendering or failure to render professional service. PL insurance provides claims assistance and legal representation. The limit of insurance purchased covers both legal defense costs and damages awarded to a third party.

      • 2.What is the difference between professional liability insurance and commercial general liability insurance?

        As mentioned above, professional liability insurance covers you from negligently rendering or failing to render professional service. Commercial General Liability insurance or (CGL) provides coverage for claims brought against family mediators by third parties alleging bodily injury, personal injury and property damage for which you are legally liable. CGL insurance protects family mediators for their non-professional exposures. For example, a client that slips and falls on your premise with claim against your CGL insurance. CGL is designed to work with and not duplicate coverage from professional liability insurance.

      • 3. Am I covered anywhere in the world?

        No. The professional liability insurance applies only to claims which give rise to suits first brought against you within Canada. This policy provides a $250,000 sublimit for suits first brought against you in the U.S. The coverage territory for CGL insurance applies to occurrences worldwide but only to claims, demands or proceedings first brought against you in Canada or the U.S.

  • Commercial General Liability Insurance

    Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance protects you in the case of claims made as a result of third party injuries or property damage. It’s a crucial risk-management strategy for any business because it covers your general business activities such as visits and meetings with customers, company events, libel, slander, advertising, and more. Even clients and landlords are increasingly requesting independent professionals and business owners to have CGL in place before willingly engaging in any contract.

    In order to purchase CGL insurance through the OAFM program you must also purchase the Professional Liability insurance.

    • FAQ

      • 1. Does the OAFM require proof of Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance?

        No. CGL is offered as an option to OAFM members. Members operating independent facilities/offices need CGL protection to expand the capacity of their liability protection. Members operating from a home office should consult with their home insurance provider if CGL coverage is extended to their family mediation practice.

  • Health & Dental Insurance

    If you are an independent professional, you probably don’t have access to traditional employee benefits like Health, Dental, and Drug coverage. Yet, you’re still susceptible to the same health problems as anyone else.

    Unfortunately, expensive treatments, prescriptions, and high-cost dental work always seem to pop up when you’re least expecting them. And when these unpredictable events occur, they also come with a serious potential to derail your budget. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

  • Critical Illness Insurance

    Medicine has allowed people to live both through and with serious illnesses at higher survival rates than in the past. However, such sicknesses often come with many direct and indirect costs. Certain drugs and treatments are not covered by typical health plans, while some of the latest healthcare innovations are only available in the US. Indirect costs can encompass anything from travel expenses to child care, and more. Unfortunately, most people don’t intuitively know to account for these things.

    If you were to get seriously sick, Critical Illness coverage can provide you with a lump sum that you can leverage in whatever way best fits your needs. Once it’s been paid, there are no restrictions as to how you decide to spend it—whether that means hiring a nurse, making your home accessible, taking a vacation or even paying off a portion of your mortgage.

    PROLINK can help you access the best that medicine has to offer by providing you with a customized Critical Illness policy that is cost-effective and will give you the long-term financial flexibility you will require.

  • Travel Medical Insurance

    When you plan a trip, you determine the things to pack, the sights you’ll see, and the budget for food and activities. You probably don’t consider the things that can go wrong, the process for finding help, and the unforeseen medical bills.

    And that’s normal. You work hard and deserve a worry-free vacation. Sadly, life doesn’t go on holiday. A health crisis can happen no matter where in the world you may be. To truly relax, you need to feel secure in knowing that you are protected if something were to happen to you or your loved ones during your time away.

    At PROLINK—Canada’s Insurance Connection we can help you access comprehensive Medical Travel coverage for your trip. Plus beyond simply covering emergency medical costs, we can also help you add lost baggage and trip cancellation endorsements to your policy.

    Be prepared for whatever happens, wherever it happens.

  • Pet Insurance

    If you’re like most pet owners, your pet is your constant companion. So when your little companion unavoidably gets sick, it can be very distressing emotionally. We can all agree that it’s hard to see your once-lively pet refuse to eat or struggle up the stairs.

    While the veterinarian can offer you hope to cure whatever’s ailing your pet, that cure often comes at a high cost. Many people either have to save up for a treatment, or put themselves in debt in order to afford these unexpected fees. Still, you want your pet to receive the best care available.

    Purchasing PetSecure insurance through PROLINK can help take away the financial burden of getting your pet the care that they require in times of need. For a small monthly rate, you can receive up to thousands of dollars in coverage for your pet’s accidents, illnesses, and dental care.
