Risk Management and Insurance adjusts the claims, and may hire legal counsel or other professionals in order to settle the claim in a fair and economical manner. 

What types of insurance are covered?

Insurance coverage includes liability, property, automobile, boiler and machinery, crime, fiduciary, and all medical and malpractice.

Who are the RM&I Clients?

  • government departments,
  • school boards/districts, or
  • public sector agencies, commissions, boards, and crown corporations.
