Insurance Fee

All events must be insured.  If a group renting the hall does not have their own insurance, then insurance must be taken out through the Anglican Diocese Insurer, Marsh Insurance.  There is an online procedure for applying for this insurance.  More information is available from the Church Office.  Insurance rates are based on a sliding scale depending on the nature of the event, the ages of those attending and whether or not alcohol is served.  Insurance arrangements must be completed two weeks before the date of an event.  A copy of insurance coverage for each event must be given to the church office.  If a group renting the hall has their own organizational insurance, a copy must be supplied to the church office naming the Incumbent and Churchwardens of St. Paul’s Anglican Church and the Incorporated Synod of the Diocese of Toronto as parties insured on the date in question.

The renter must purchase insurance from the church’s insurance company, indicating that alcohol will be served at the event. With the purchase of this insurance, the church is absolved from any liability and the renter assumes total liability for any accident or injury resulting from the actions of someone who is above the legal alcohol limit.

The following is strongly recommended:

Only bartenders with SMARTSERVE accreditation be used. SMARTSERVE bartenders are available from Georgian College by calling 728-1968 ext. 5280. Bartenders with SMARTSERVE have the right to refuse drinks or to call police if problems arise.

SMARTSERVE bartenders are the only ones to serve alcohol at the event. This is to

protect your liability and the health and safety of your guests.

If there are more than 100 guests, then 2 bartenders are required.

The last call for drinks is 11:30 p.m. The bar is to close at midnight.
