Commercial insurance clients in multiple industry segments can now receive tailored core coverages under a single package solution.

Core coverages include first and third party cyber, D&O liability, media management crisis costs, event cancellation and currency devaluation. Tailored for seven specific industry segments, the core coverages are part specialist insurer CNA Canada’s new oneworld+ product.

The product also includes distinct coverages such as event cancellation, currency devaluation and media crisis management, among others, depending on the industry segment. The seven industry segments are:

  • Construction (HVAC, mechanical and sheet metal fabricating contractors, drilling contractors, renewable energy contractors, etc.)
  • Technology (including print and electronic media organizations, Internet service providers, software developers and IT service firms)
  • Office (Canadian companies requiring property & CGL coverage for their office exposures: financial institutions, professional services and business services)
  • Manufacturing (metal products, plastic and rubber, wood and furniture, etc.)
  • Oil and Gas (contractors for cementing, drilling, fracturing, pipelines, among others)
  • Healthcare (life sciences firms, allied healthcare facilities and providers, diagnostic and surgical centres and rehabilitation clinics).

In addition to core coverages, the suite provides customers with value-added services such as risk management, business continuity planning and claims handling.
