The Vancouver School District, as a partner school board, provides parents with the opportunity to purchase insurance coverage through Kids Plus™. The main website http://kidsplus.ca is available for parents to access information about purchase coverage; claims forms and full plan information online.

The Vancouver School District is offering you the opportunity to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance provides protection against unexpected costs arising from accidental injuries.  The program is especially valuable for families who do not have medical or dental plans; have limited plans; or have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance has a selection of plans to suit most budgets.  Benefits include:

  • Coverage for the full school year (September to September), 24 hours a day, while at home and in school;
  • Expenses that are often limited or not covered by private or group insurance plans, or Provincial Health Insurance, such as physiotherapy, private tutoring, counselling, and much more;
  • Injury-related dental treatment;
  • Out-of-province or country emergency medical expenses.

Insurance premiums for children are $14.50 or $33.50/year, depending upon plan.  Adults 20-64 can also be insured for $32/year.
