Locals With Independent Insurance
We ask that locals with independent insurance have a minimum coverage of $2,000,000. If you have the correct coverage, we need a certificate of insurance with Yervana Services Inc named as an additional insured. This is a fairly standard procedure and most insurance companies will do this at no charge.
The Yervana information to be referenced is:
Yervana Services Inc
510 Burrard Street, Suite 1010
Vancouver, BC V6C 3A8.

Yervana’s Insurance FAQs
What insurance coverage does Yervana provide to Locals?
- If an accident happens and a third party, including Explorers, claims damages against a Local for which a Local is found liable then our insurance may cover up to $2 million of general liability for each occurrence and in the aggregate. The policy also includes coverage for medical expenses.
What is not covered by the insurance policy?
- Any activities outside of those Adventures purchased through Yervana are not covered. Adventures must be booked through Yervana for full coverage.

Does the insurance cover any transportation to or from the trail head?
- No. Check with your automobile insurance provider regarding transportation insurance.
If the Adventure occurs in Alberta or BC Parks or on Crown Land in Alberta or BC, is this insurance sufficient for the Province of Alberta or the Province of BC?
- Yes. Both Alberta and BC require $2 million of insurance coverage.
