Holiday party insurance (Canada)
Throwing a party in your office or at your home or maybe you are renting a venue?
Well, you’re going to need one-day special event insurance.
WHAT IS EVENT INSURANCE?
Short-term event insurance protects you from lawsuits caused by damage to the location you are renting or lawsuits that arise if your guests are injured. Your rented venue is likely going to ask for evidence of liability insurance so the venue owners are not drawn into your lawsuit.
What would I need event insurance for?
- Hosting a company party during the holidays is a great time to bond with coworkers. Parties are fun until your staff are injured. What if your employee is forced to sue your company? Will your business office insurance cover a holiday party? Event liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs potentially awarded to your injured guest.
- If you are hosting a Canada Day party in a municipal park, or on a municipal beach or on crown land you may need a permit that requires you to show evidence of insurance. Often the permit will specify the liability amount required. Front Row's event insurance can provide limits up to $5,000,000 online.
- Your guests may accidentally damage the cabana or barbecue shelter you have rented. Does the owner require you to provide evidence of liability insurance? It is suggested that you check your rental contract.
- Are you hosting the holiday party around Christmas at your house? Check with your home insurer to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered especially if you serve alcohol.
- Have you rented furniture, a sound system or a marquee for your annual summer bash? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Take time to read the fine print in those rental contracts. Coverage is available through Front Row's event insurance.
- If you are serving alcohol, try to hire a caterer to serve the drinks and purchase host liquor liability insurance.
- What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits from a cartwheeling marquee would be covered with event insurance.

If you will be serving alcohol at your holiday party, make sure that you request host liquor liability coverage. Remember, as a host you are responsible for the safety of any guests. You could be held legally responsible if people consume alcohol during your holiday party and harm themselves or someone else. Consider how your guests will be traveling home.
