Hockey Canada has a program of General Liability and Accidental Medical Treatment insurance which are described in the Hockey Canada booklet "Safety Requires Teamwork". A reading of this booklet is recommended. It should be noted that the insurance provides coverage for registered players and Team Officials for certain limited medical/dental and disability claims. It is not a comprehensive medical or disability policy and will not pay complete medical expenses or loss of wages in the event of a disabling injury.
In the event of an injury, a Hockey Canada Injury Report must be completed and forwarded to Hockey Alberta. The report, along with any attachments should be mailed to Hockey Alberta at the following address:
100 College Blvd.
Box5005, Room 2606
Red Deer, AB T4N 5H5
Hockey Canada Injury Reports must be submitted within 90 days of the date of injury in order for a claim for expenses to be made. The Hockey Canada Insurance program is the secondary insurer - this means that a claim must be submitted first to any other plan available through an employer or independent provider.
