Wild Fires in Ontario – OE’s Automatic Insurance Coverage

June 1, 2023

With wildfires burning in several regions in the country, we want to remind you that the automatic insurance provided with membership in your PTSO protects you for liability arising from the temporary care, custody and control of up to three non-owned horses that have been displaced due to fire, flood and other natural disasters.

To those members that are lending a hand to others who are in need to move their horses and house them in safer areas – we THANK YOU.

We are also obliged to advise that no new insurance coverage can be placed when an active wildfire is less than 50 km away.

This includes the optional coverage for tack and members Named Perils horse insurance.

If you have questions about your insurance coverage, contact your Acera Insurance equine specialists at 1-888-394-3330 in Eastern Canada or 1-800-670-1877 in the West.
