Urban Rec maintains a $5.0M Commercial General Liability policy, however we are no longer able to provide individual accident coverage. Members are encouraged to source their own accident coverage if they are concerned about potential injury. Many insurers in British Columbia offer this coverage, and an example of the types of policies available can be found here: https://www.manulife.ca/personal/insurance/our-products/health-insurance/disability/personal-accident-insurance.html
