Managing Your Bookings

Do I need insurance if I’m booking the Community Meeting Room?

Yes.

To use the community meeting room at the Squamish Public Library, you are required to obtain a Liability Insurance Policy with a minimum value of: $2,000,000 (2 million dollars) for all events, and; $5,000,000 (5 million dollars) to include an “endorsement” for “host liquor liability” for a liquor licensed event.

The insurance must name the District of Squamish as “additional insured” and a Certificate of Insurance must be provided to the District prior to the event. All Certificates of Insurance must also include a 30 day insurance policy cancellation clause.

Insurance can be purchased through https://www.eventpolicy.ca/. On this site the customer enters in the details of their event, a quote comes up, then the customer accepts and pays. The insurance certificate is automatically sent to the District of Squamish.
