Canadian Museums Association Insurance Program

Marsh Canada is proud to be the exclusive broker to the Canadian Museums Association (CMA).

Such recognition is not taken for granted, and in our view, carries a responsibility to ensure program coverages continually evolve to reflect the needs of the museum sector.The program provides tailored insurance designed for museums and art galleries, as well as related organizations such as foundations, councils, and societies.

Group purchasing provides an excellent spread of risk. The impact of any given loss to a group program would be relatively small — the same loss to an individual institution could be catastrophic. Let the overall results of your group program help protect you from the unexpected cost variations of an individual insurance purchase.
