Saint Andrew's requires all rentals to hold liability insurance for their event(s) for safety and coverage in the event of an accident or facility damage.
Duuo Insurance provides easy to obtain and cost effective policies - best for one time events. We are a registered venue listed as "St. Andrew's United Church (The Stage at St. Andrew's)" so we can pass along some cost savings to you too.
For ongoing meetings or events, there is also reasonably priced insurance offered with the United Church of Canada, through HUB International.
