About certificates of insurance

  • My client requires a certificate of insurance in order for me to act as counsel. How do I get one?

    In many instances, your declarations page (which was provided to you with your annual invoice and is available electronically), will serve as sufficient proof of coverage. The declarations page outlines the coverage provided to you under the Law Society of Upper Canada's insurance program, including policy period and coverage limits. For your convenience, a PDF copy may be downloaded from the secure My LAWPRO section of our website. Go to Primary Policy Docs and choose the applicable year (e.g. - 2018 Policy Documents). Under the Invoice & Declaration header, choose 2018 Premium Invoice & Declaration page. The first page is your premium invoice and should not be forwarded to your client. The subsequent page(s) labelled "Declarations" is/are evidence of your proof of coverage and may be forwarded to your client. Providing a copy of your declarations page to your client will often satisfy the requirement of showing proof of coverage.
