To keep your municipal government strong and respected you need to ensure your town has a strong infrastructure. P.D. Foster Insurance offers municipal Insurance throughout Eastern Canada providing towns, cities and villages with financial protection from risks and liabilities related to municipal infrastructure maintenance.
What is Municipal Insurance?
Your government is responsible for the welfare of your community, and this requires daily operations that come with challenges and risks. Keeping your infrastructure well-maintained can face disruption due to budget and resource challenges, leaving some areas more vulnerable to accidents due to degrading pathways, steps, sidewalks, roadways, highways, parkland and more.
When accidents occur due to poor maintenance, whether it is to vehicles or pedestrians, your municipality is liable for the damages. From slips and falls on unsalted sidewalks to potholes and ruts in major roadways, Municipal Insurance protects you from these liability claims.
Why You Need Municipal Insurance
Municipal Insurance protects your community government from financial challenges brought on by liability claims, as well as scenarios that put your ability to govern effectively at risk. Your job is to look after your community. However, in some cases, issues arise beyond your control.
Budget restraints, weather events and other unexpected challenges can interfere with your ability to keep your municipality safe. As a result, P.D. Foster Insurance offers comprehensive Municipal Insurance coverage to mitigate risks associated with town operations and potential legal claims.
We help you find the right coverage for your needs to provide peace of mind so your government can focus on community well-being, growth and sound finances. We reduce the risk of lost funds so your operating budget remains healthy and you can fulfill your obligations to your community.
What coverage does Municipal Insurance provide?
Municipal Insurance protects your government against claims related to:
- Property damage
- Legal defence and settlements
You can also opt for additional coverage for cyber risks such as data breaches that can provide access to confidential information for residents such as property taxes. Legislation monitoring ensures your protection is updated based on changing laws both federal and provincial as they apply to your municipality. Your coverage ensures your assets are secured by covering claims. As a result, your operational budgets remain untouched to avoid interference or disruption of your essential services.
