Canadian Athlete Insurance Program (CAIP)
Swimming/Natation Canada (SNC) subscribes to an accident and sickness insurance program, The Canadian Athlete Insurance Program (CAIP), underwritten by SSQ Insurance Company Inc. and administered by Armstrong-McCready Inc.
THE BELOW IS ONLY A GUIDELINE AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY THE MOST RECENT PUBLISHED BENEFITS BY CAIP. THE LATEST VERSION IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST FROM SNC.
CAIP is a plan that was specifically designed to address the accident/injury needs of national team Athletes while training and competing “in-country” and “out-of-country”. One of the key features of the CAIP is the overuse coverage (for injuries resulting from causes other than accidental injury).
To be eligible for CAIP enrollment through SNC, the athlete must be a Sport Canada AAP carded athlete and registered with a Provincial Health Care program which provides their primary care coverage.
All eligible carded athletes are automatically insured for ACCIDENT AND INJURY coverage “in-country” while competing in, or training for the sport. SICKNESS is not covered “in-country”.

Please note that as of April 2022, Swimming Canada is no longer submitting claims on behalf of athletes.
