Security and protection industry liability insurance

Standard liability policies don’t come close to meeting the unique needs of the Security and Protection Industry. Markel is Canada’s leading insurer for Security and Protection Professionals with more experience and in-depth knowledge of the needs of the Private Security Industry than any other company in the marketplace. We have been writing cover for this class of business for over 30 years, your trusted provider. We have a custom designed policy providing cover for “failure to perform” and “errors and omissions”.

Coverage is intended for Canadian domiciled risks however, we have the underwriting flexibility to accommodate some US and foreign exposures.  We can tailor a package policy providing Commercial General Liability, E&O, Employee Fidelity and Commercial Property cover.
