Ontario Certificate of Insurance– Request Yours

A certificate of insurance or for contractors, a builders risk policy, is something we get asked about a lot. A certificate of insurance is a document that we issue to verify the existence of insurance coverage based on specific conditions. The information typically includes the effective date of the policy, the amount of insurance coverage in place, the type of insurance coverage on the policy, and the total liability associated with the policy. These certificates are often demanded for large trucking companies who are delivering or picking up goods. The supplier will almost always demand a certificate of insurance to be presented before any contract is in place. It is also common for large contractors who are undertake municipal or commercial jobs where liability and potential losses are a big concern. In most cases, before you can win the contract you must provided a certificate of insurance.

How Do You Get a Certificate of Insurance?

When it comes to getting a certificate of insurance there are a few common misconceptions that companies or individuals have. The biggest misconception is that you can acquire a certificate of insurance without an active policy in place. This is not the case, you must have an active policy in place in order to receive a certificate of insurance. Do you need an active policy? You’re going to want to head to our commercial insurance page and request a quote to speak with one of our experts.

Another misconception is that a certificate of insurance is only required for large companies in specific industries. Again, this is not the case. An individual may ask another individual for a certificate of insurance as the potential client wants confirmation that the business owner or contractor has liability insurance and that the client won’t be held liable.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Val Huckstep

My experience with McDougall Insurance has been amazing right from the start! I got in contact with Jon Borello a few months ago, and have been overly pleased with his service! As this is my first time on insurance, Jon has made the experience super easy for me, and completely stress free! I’ve been more than pleased with the prices he’s worked out for me and the over all service he provides. I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made to go with McDougall, and I don’t ever plan on changing companies!!

We have been with McDougall for over 15 years. They are an exceptional office with great people. Quick to respond – we were hit with a tornado in 2006 – and were excellent to deal with.

I’ve only been with mcdougall insurance for 6 months. Mike cunha has been amazing. Aways there to answer any questions I may have. I have a classic car and my rates for car and house are cheaper than my old rate for just my car at my previous insurance company. Thanks Mike!
