Procedures for Obtaining a Certificate

For detailed instructions on how to submit a request for a Certificate of Insurance, please refer to the BFL Canada User Guide. Complete the Certificate of Insurance Request form in full using the online platform.

Once the request has been submitted through the online platform, it will be reviewed by Hockey Alberta and submitted to BFL for processing. Once BFL has issued the Certificate of Insurance, it will first be sent to Hockey Alberta, and then forwarded on to the requesting member.

Please note: Hockey Canada’s activities will be insured by a new insurance company starting March 1, 2023. If a third party is requesting a Certificate of Insurance for your sanctioned activities, then a new policy number, term and policy information will need to appear on the Certificate of Insurance for activities happening after March 1.

Hockey Canada’s broker, BFL Canada has made the following recommendations for how all Certificates of Insurance should be logged into the BFL Canada platform:

  1. For events after March 1.
    1. If you already have a Certificate of Insurance valid until March 1 and the third party has requested a new one for events after March 1.

As usual, make sure to enter the correct information on the request:

Notes on "How to" on the platform

Under organization: Third party requesting a proof of insurance. It should not be the team itself, nor one of its volunteers. You can always use "To whom it may concern" if the third party is not clearly identified.

Under dates of event: Please make sure you identify the correct dates of the event.

Please allow up to 10 business days for processing.
