Liability insurance is required for all non-school board sponsored/community use activities. The community user group or permit holder must carry a minimum of $2 million liability insurance and Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board must be named as an additional insured on the policy.
If the group or /permit holder does not have insurance, coverage is available through Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board for not-for-profit and non-commercial groups. (Commercial activities require an insurance certificate.) Coverage is provided by Ontario School Boards' Insurance Exchange (OSBIE). Cost is based on the number of bookings and type of activity, and will automatically be added to the permit fee.
Criminal reference checks
A satisfactory Criminal Reference Check is required for any member of the user group who will have direct contact with students of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board during the day. The Criminal Reference Check must be provided to the school principal prior to the event booking or the permit will be cancelled.
