Student Accident

Student Accident Insurance exclusively for students of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board

Binks Insurance has provided Student Accident Insurance to students in the Ottawa area for over half a century.

Ottawa-Carleton District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for injuries that occur to students on school premises or during school activities. Accidents can and do happen. Injuries often incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. As a parent or guardian of a student, you become responsible for expenses.

Protect Yourself with Student Accident Insurance

The insuremykids® program offered through Old Republic Canada is an inexpensive and comprehensive way to protect your family from unexpected expenses year-round. It provides benefits not covered by any government health or group insurance plans to ensure your family’s financial wellbeing is protected.

Student Accident Insurance provides coverage for:

Essential coverage for children of any age
