Access to industry-leading professional liability insurance (PLI)

PLI is mandatory to practise in Ontario, and the insurance offered through OAMRS is renowned as one of the most comprehensive coverages in the industry. Many professionals believe that they are insured through their employer or union, but this is not always the case, or not as comprehensive as you might require. Not all PLI is the same. OAMRS offers the best insurance in the business that protects you and your personal assets (house, car, savings, wages, etc.) against any claims…even if the claims are not true.  Even supervisors, educators and corporate sales professionals in the profession of medical radiation sciences need PLI.  Learn more about who needs PLI.
