FOCA, in association with Atrens-Counsel Insurance Brokers Ltd., is pleased and proud to announce a NEW insurance program available to FOCA members at a preferred rate.
* Best-in-class coverage for cottages and watercraft
* Replacement-cost coverage
* Designed for cottage owners, by cottage owners!
* FOCA membership benefits
Hundreds of associations already trust Atrens-Counsel for superior group liability protection for their volunteers and directors. Now, we proudly introduce a program for FOCA member cottages and watercraft that is a cost-effective option for cottagers.

Check out the information on the FOCA web site

I do not know how these rates compare to your current rate, but if you are up for renewal check it out.

You can keep up to date with all the our membership with FOCA brings by subscribing to their Elert emails. You can sign up on the FOCA home page
