Alzheimer Society Insurance Program

The Shared Services of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario is pleased to provide access to a comprehensive insurance program designed exclusively for community-based, not-for-profit organizations — brokered by Marsh Canada Limited. Alzheimer Societies across Canada can benefit directly from Marsh Canada’s extensive risk management experience and the availability of a program to help cover the insurance needs of not-for-profit organizations. It is Marsh Canada’s understanding of your organization’s specific risk needs that sets the Alzheimer Society Insurance Program apart from other coverage offerings. Please contact your Marsh Canada licensed insurance broker for your no-obligation quote.


With numerous Societies currently participating in the plan, considerable buying power is generated by the group insurance program. This group arrangement, in tandem with strong insurance company relationships, has resulted in a program that helps ensure the long-term availability of a competitively priced, broad-form source of insurance protection.

Alzheimer Society Insurance Program group participants also benefit from the ability to spread losses, so they are considered as part of the group loss experience. This helps ensure that no individual loss needlessly drives up the cost of a single agency’s policy. Note that each participating organization has their own policy limits, these limits are not shared.

The program professional liability (malpractice) insurer, Aviva Canada Inc., has been providing coverage to hospitals, healthcare organizations, long-term care, retirement facilities, and not-for-profit organizations for more than 35 years. They remain committed to working with our clients to help control costs.

Great American Insurance is the insurer for the group program’s Directors and Officers Liability insurance which includes a broad coverage extension for Cyber Risks. Great American has been a leading insurer for not-for-profit organizations in Canada for over a decade.
