Museums and Galleries


Marsh Canada Limited is proud to be the broker of the Canadian Museums Association (CMA) Insurance Program — a program specifically designed 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.

Over 200 CMA members already benefit from the power of group purchasing and preferred rates. 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 your museum or art gallery client from the unexpected cost variations of an individual insurance purchase.

The program is national in scope, and caters to museums and art galleries, as well as related institutions specializing in a variety of disciplines, including:
