Sports Accident Insurance

SFU maintains a sports accident policy for injuries that occur during officially sanctioned practices or games, or during group travel to a practice or game in locations pre-identified by SFU Athletics and Recreation. The policy offers coverage to SFU players, managers, and coaches of official SFU competitive and recreational sports programs. Please note that there are a number of exclusions and eligibility will be determined after a claim is submitted. Coverage is worldwide and provides nominal reimbursement for dental expenses, fractures, rehabilitation, and other medical services. You are welcome to confirm with SFU Risk Management that the policy remains current.

Claims from within Canada must be submitted in writing (by mail or email) within 30 days of the incident (email claims.spgroup@ssq.ca) or by submitting claims documents to SSQ Assurance, 1200 Papineau Avenue, Suite 460, Montreal, Quebec, H2K 4R5. The initial claims documents consist of the Consent form and the Proof of Loss for Accident form. You may be requested to submit other documentation to support your claim.

Claims while travelling outside Canada can be initiated by calling 1-866-783-9473 (toll free) or 514-285-8195 (collect) quoting identification number 427W and Policy No. 1LF40. You will likely  be required to complete the Consent and Proof of Loss of Accident documents referred to above.
