Student Accident Insurance

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school premises or during school activities. Some injuries incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial healthcare or employer group plans. As a parent or guardian, you become responsible for these expenses.

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board does make available the insuremykids® Protection Plan for students exclusively through Reliable Life Insurance Company. Participation in such a programme is voluntary and the costs are to be paid by the parent or guardian.
