We believe in personal relationships.

As a result, we’ve seen insurance from every perspective. Wherever you’re coming from, and whatever you need, we’re your one-stop-insurance-shop. You can depend on us for the protection you require.
We represent a network of insurers.
We know their strengths, their weaknesses, how they’ll assess you as a risk, and how they’ll treat you in the event of a claim. Plus, as one of Canada’s largest national brokerages, we have the buying power and influence required to advocate for you and your needs with the various insurers.
We work for you, not the insurer.
As an independent insurance brokerage, we are not obligated to sell you on a particular insurer. Instead, we’ll evaluate the available offerings and the discounts you are eligible for, to bring you solutions to best fit your life.

Professional Liability Insurance
As a Registered Nurse (RN) or Registered Practical Nurse (RPN), you expect the unexpected. But sometimes the unexpected happens to you. Even the best of clinicians make mistakes, especially in situations where speed and efficiency mean the difference in saving someone’s life. Working in such a stressful environment means that you could be susceptible to a potential lawsuit, whether you’re at fault or not. Even volunteering medical advice or assisting someone off duty can lead to allegations of malpractice. And your employer may not always cover you in their policy—they might even sue you to recover the money spent on legal defenses.
We can help. PROLINK—Canada’s Insurance Connection has partnered with OCHU/CUPE to provide Professional Liability insurance exclusively for registered RNs and RPNs. Our customized insurance program is built to address the specific risks you face as a healthcare practitioner on the front lines of medicine and protect you in the event of claim. We’ll take care of you so you can take care of your patients.
Our program features:
- FREE telephone legal advice by calling the Trisura Legal Assistance Hotline at 1-866-945-5207. You can access this service from 8 AM until midnight, seven days a week. Have your policy number on hand when you call;

- Complete online solutions. Apply, pay and obtain your certificate of insurance in less than 5 minutes;
- Coverage for RPN services rendered outside of your employment agreement with a hospital or long-term care facility;
- Members do not have to pay fees to a separate Nursing Association in order to access competitive group insurance rates;
- And more!
Protection for Me and My Personal Life
Your life is complicated. Selecting your insurance doesn’t have to be. Learn how we can help make your life simpler.
Home & Auto Insurance
On any given day, someone could slam into your car during the morning commute, or your basement could flood causing thousands of dollars of damage. These—along with any number of other scenarios—have the potential to disrupt your life and bring you emotional distress and financial strain.
At PROLINK—Canada’s Insurance Connection it’s our job to worry about which coverages you need and which risks you face so that you don’t have to. With over 30 years of experience and access to over 30 insurers, we can offer you a choice of insurance solutions, price points, and other benefits. Wherever you’re coming from, and whatever you need—we’ve been there and done that. You can depend on us for the protection you require.
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.
PROLINK can help. Our plans cover Health, Vision, Dental, and Drugs, and can get you access to 15 Paramedical services such as Massage, Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, and more. We will take the time to understand you, your needs, and your family, and offer you an affordable solution that fits your life, perfectly.
If something were to happen to you, could your family or loved ones recover financially without feeling a serious strain on their assets? A rich Life policy can help them get back on their feet, should something occur.
So pass the pain over to us. At PROLINK, we will take the time to understand you, your needs and your family. Then, we will offer you a best-fit solution for you and those you care about that is affordable and offers the long-term protection you and they will require.
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.
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.
Sometimes, stuff happens. In the event that you need to make a claim and the situation is urgent or an emergency, help is a phone call away!
Monday to Friday (8AM to 5PM)
Contact PROLINK directly at 1 800 663 6828. We will take your claim, confirm your policy and report it to your insurer.

Please reach out to PROLINK if you ever feel unsure. We’re here for you.
