personal workplace insurance in AB & BC


Personal workplace insurance in AB & BC

Optional workplace insurance for individuals is available under Alberta’s Workers Compensation Board (WCB) and British Columbia’s WorkSafe BC:

Alberta: Optional Personal Coverage

British Columbia: Personal Option Protection

Coverage, cost and eligibility differs from province to province, but generally these plans are designed to protect individuals (like self-employed performing artists) who are not automatically covered for compensation under an employer.

Different from medical benefits, these forms of personal insurance cover lost salary if you are injured or contract a disease as a result of your work.

As dancers, we push our bodies and risk injury every time we head to the studio. To learn more about protecting your livelihood, follow these links or contact us:
