C13: Insurance Against Liability—Part 1

Please note that the final examination for this course is a computer-based exam.

To understand liability insurance, you must first know something of the law and the Canadian legal system and the differences between the common law and the Civil Code of Québec. Insurance Against Liability—Part 1 is not a law course, but it does introduce you to those legal principles that affect liability insurance. It discusses some of the more common ways people become liable to each other and explains how this liability may be insured or why it cannot be insured. Insurance Against Liability—Part 1 is one of the building blocks of your CIP Program. We recommend you take C12: Insurance on PropertyandC14: Automobile Insurance—Part 1  first.
