If you already have another policy and would like to change to the College’s policy:
You can sign up through the online portal starting in July for a policy start date of September 30, 2021. The link to this portal will be emailed to you and will be available online as soon as it is live.
The portal will accept credit cards and all processing will be instant.
If you need a policy now or want to change right now:
There is a temporary online application form if you need or want to obtain insurance prior to the online portal going live in July. If you require insurance early (effective prior to September 30), there will be a flat $20 additional premium to the annual premium of $65. The insurance will then run from the date of purchase to September 30, 2022 so you do not need to renew until 2022.

When you submit the form, you will be contacted by someone from Lloyd Sadd to process payment and be issued a certificate. Until the portal is fully set up, they will arrange payment to be made by e-transfer or credit card directly.
If you want to keep your Marsh insurance policy:
As the College no longer manages your PAC membership, you will need to sign up for a membership with PAC to be eligible to keep/renew your Marsh insurance policy.
Why is the College offering a liability insurance program?
Liability insurance is a regulatory requirement. As the Alberta government continues to eliminate forced association affiliations, the College is not able to promote association membership as the only option to access a group rate on this insurance to meet a regulatory requirement.
Why is the College no longer the Alberta chapter of PAC?
As part of Bill 46 and the changes announced to the Health Professions Act (HPA), all regulatory colleges must cease any activities of an association nature. This change means we can no longer hold our position as the chapter for PAC in Alberta.
