• Accident and Commercial General Liability is covered in the USA same as it would in Canada. For those travelling outside of Canada, coverage  will apply while participating in a sanctioned event in conjunction with the sport (softball). The accident policy will cover if a registered player gets injured while participating in the sport and CGL policy will respond if there is an incident where a participant gets sued for an incident (not excluded) that occurred while participating in the sanctioned event.

  • So if there is an injury, MB Health would be 1st, then Markel accident policy.

  • What Markel is no longer offering is the out of province travel insurance which could be obtained by Blue Cross, Manulife etc.  or individuals may have their own medical coverage through work. So, if they get sick, car accident, fall off a bike.. no coverage would apply.
