What is Professional Liability Insurance in Ontario? 

The reality of the matter is this: an Ontario professional simply cannot be without carrying professional liability insurance. In Ontario, lawsuits are increasing in frequency and severity.

Professional liability insurance in Ontario is designed to cover expenses that may arise as a result of a claim alleging financial losses due to a variety of reasons.

Managing Your Risk with Ontario Professional Liability Insurance 

Every professional in this day and age will face some level of risk. General liability insurance, although necessary, is not enough coverage to safeguard a business in its entirety — especially yours that faces unique exposures due to the professional services or advice that it provides. Projects go wrong, whether due a miscommunication, human error, or anything else — and these could result in serious damages and losses to a client. With professional liability insurance, Ontario businesses can have the peace-of-mind they need and deserve to work without worrying. Let CCV Insurance’s professional liability insurance brokers in Ontario help get the coverage you need and minimize your risks. 

How Much Does Professional Liability Insurance in Ontario Cost? 

Professional liability insurance policies in Ontario are designed to cover costs associated with a lawsuit, such as defense costs, settlements and judgements, even if any allegations that have been filed against your business are found to be untrue. 

Professional liability insurance in Ontario offers great protection. What you’ll pay for this coverage depends on several factors, including: 

  • Your business experience: More experienced businesses tend to pay less overall for their insurance as they have built up more of a reputation. 
  • Your insurance history: The more claims you have under your belt, the more expensive your insurance is likely to be due to the chance of you making another claim. 
  • Your industry: Some industries are at higher risk of filing a claim than others. Photographers might not see as many lawsuits or claims as, say, a financial advisor or a therapist. 
  • Your employee training: Human error is the biggest risk for professional businesses. More experience and more training help to reduce risk and can, therefore, reduce your premium. By providing your staff with consistent training, you’ll have a lower risk profile from an insurance point of view. 
  • Your annual revenue: Higher income will generally translate to more clients and higher quality contracts — meaning higher stakes. More money can provoke a higher risk of facing a lawsuit. 
  • Business size: A large company could be held liable for a lot more in settlement fees than a smaller business that charges a lot less. That being said, don’t underestimate the importance of professional liability insurance for small businesses. Small businesses in Ontario are just as much at risk of a lawsuit as larger businesses and may have less financial muscle to recoup.
