Farm Insurance 101

BMO Centre

20 Roundup Way SW, Calgary Stampede Grounds, Calgary, AB, T2G 2W1 [Map]
Date and Time: April 04, 2019 8:30 am - 3:00 pm


Did you know that the farming industry in Alberta is the second largest industry, second only to the oil industry? Many farm policies are undervalued and don't have adequate coverages. Protect yourself and your clients from unexpected and underinsured losses. 

Canadian farms are unique entities requiring a combination of homeowners, commercial property and commercial liability coverage. Distinctive products have been developed to provide the specialized coverage required for these exceptional enterprises. Attendees will learn how to recognize the differences between the residential, farm property and liability components of Farm Insurance. Attendees will gain credibility with clients, be able to better understand and/or describe farm risks to underwriters, have a greater sense of how claims are settled for the majority of farm types, as well as get an introduction to some of the more complex property, business interruption, and liability coverages for specialty farm exposures that will be followed up in the Farm 201 session on May 9 .

This seminar will give you the unique opportunity to view specialized farm equipment up close and personal at the Calgary Stampede Grounds during the popular Agricultural Days.
