Our parishes are public spaces and we believe the more they get used, the more faithful our stewardship of the valuable resources. In order to ensure that people using our spaces are safe and protected, we follow a number of procedures and policies. 

It is mandatory for rental users (groups and individuals), for example, to carry liability insurance when renting a parish facility. The Anglican Church of Canada (through our insurance broker, AON Reed Stenhouse) has implemented a Facility Rental User Liability Insurance Program. This affordable liability protection program will be offered to those renting parish/Diocesan facilities (i.e. churches, halls, rooms, fields). You can find more information about this program below.

Good risk management practices is what it is all about.
