As required by the EDUCATION ACT and the Ministry of Education, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board annually provides parents with information about cost-effective student accident insurance coverage via student carrier "Insuremykids Pro-tection Plan." Forms were distributed to students the first week of school.
Effective September 2012, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board requires parents/guardians written acknowledgement that they have received information regarding Student Insurance, especially for those students participating in out-of-school excursions and/or extra-curricular sports activities.
Although enrolment is voluntary, the board encourages parents to take advantage of the excursions/field trips, or, if parents do not have dental insurance coverage. Parents alone have the right to insure their children.
There are two options for enrolment:
- Complete the traditional form and mail it in
- Photocopy the form and fax it to Reliable Life at 1-905-522-7211 or 1-800-463-KIDS (5437).

Please note that the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board DOES NOT provide insurance for students against any accidental death, disability, dismemberment, or medical expenses that might occur as a result of accident during school activities, including sports events and field trips.
Please note, parents/guardians are required to acknowledge reading this information on all signed permission forms.
