Trent University provides Placement students with Workplace Accident Insurance and Errors and Omission Insurance coverage. Field Placement Agencies are not expected to provide students with this coverage. Please contact the FEC if you have any questions about these policies or would like to request proof of insurance.
Workplace Accident Insurance
Students are provided with either WSIB insurance or ACE-INA insurance, depending on what their placement agency’s insurance is. Students are covered by WSIB if their placement agency is WSIB covered, and ACE-INA if they do not have WSIB.
Errors and Omission
Students are provided with Errors and Omission insurance by the University; this provides students with professional liability insurance in the case of serious mistakes.
