Insurance Program

The Opticians Association of Canada offers the following types of insurance for its members:

Professional Errors & Omissions Liability Insurance
OAC membership includes a FREE* $1,000,000.00 personal Professional Liability insurance policy

The Opticians Association of Canada continues to offer a master Professional Liability Insurance Program for all members. The policy protects members from lawsuits for damages claimed by a third party, resulting from a professional error or omission or negligent act, committed during the course of their activities as an “Optician”.

The policy also protects the Opticians Association of Canada “vicariously” for claims resulting from professional services rendered by a member insured under the program.

* Alberta members must pay $30.00 to obtain $1,000,000.00 in professional liability insurance.

Want more coverage? Call the OAC office at 1-800-847-3155 or email to upgrade to a $3,000,000.00 or $5,000,000.00 PLI policy.
