Situations when UBC may request a Certificate of Insurance

When would UBC request a certificate of insurance?

There are two main reasons for UBC to request a certificate of insurance:

  • Contractors or third parties in contracts or agreements with UBC – Where required, third parties (e.g. contractors, subcontractors, service providers, tenants) will be requested to submit a certificate of insurance to demonstrate compliance with the insurance requirements specified in contracts or agreements.
  • Use of UBC facilities for events and activities – Individuals or groups may wish to rent University facilities or premises for their own activities such as lectures, sports activities, field rentals, conferences, films, shows, seminars, workshops and meetings. In this case, the renting party will be required to provide the University with a certificate of insurance evidencing the insurance coverage stipulated in the rental agreement.
