Corporate E&O:   While your individual E&O insurance may provide some coverage to your licensed company under certain circumstances, this coverage may not satisfy regulatory requirements in the provinces where your company is licensed.

If your corporation is a ‘personal corporation’ and is licensed in the provinces of Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, or Quebec, it  cannot share limits with you, and must have its own separate limit of insurance.  This application for this is done separately, and can be obtained from Lesley.strong@hubinternational.com, there is an additional premium cost associated with this.

If your corporation is licensed in other provinces, you may be able to include your corporation under “Personal Corporation” on the application, which will allow your personal corporation to share a limit with you.

“Personal Corporation” means a corporation owned solely by the Insured Individual, or their spouse, and exists for the purpose of limiting personal liability. A Personal Corporation does not have partners or employees.
