Resources: Guide to Safe Scouting
Scouting Safety Alerts section with an informative piece on Insurance Coverages in the Insurance Programs Alert. It has been recently updated to reflect that there is no insurance policy in place that would provide indemnification or defence coverage for those situations involving allegations of intentional and/or criminal acts. Also, a volunteer (registered or not), unit, chartered organization, or local council could jeopardize their insurance coverage under the general liability policy if they are engaging in unauthorized activities as outlined in the Guide to Safe Scouting. Unauthorized activities are not considered Official Scouting Activities.
