Press Release –
Canadian snowmobilers are celebrating the launch of Power Sports Insurance Solutions. The new and unique to Canada program will benefit this country’s snowmobile industry by making sled insurance more accessible, available and affordable.
York Fire & Casualty Insurance Company (York) and the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO) announced Power Sports Insurance Solutions today at the International Snowmobile Congress, the world’s largest annual snowmobile convention.
“York’s full scale entry into the snowmobile insurance market is the first important step toward implementing a mutually beneficial national program for snowmobiles. Power Sports Insurance Solutions will help remove uncertainty and inconsistency by providing Canadian snowmobilers with equal opportunity for sled insurance,” said CCSO President Kevin Sweetland. “Power Sports Insurance Solutions was developed by snowmobilers for snowmobilers, so we are confident it will meet all of our insurance needs for many years to come.”
Power Sports Insurance Solutions provides York’s high quality personal sled insurance protection at competitive prices through local brokers. York’s full suite of personal and commercial lines insurance products are also available through Power Sports Insurance Solutions. As the program spreads across Canada in the next year or two, it will also offer insurance for motorcycles, ATV’s, boats and RV’s.
The new program is already set to kick off in Canada’s largest market, Ontario, exclusively with the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). York is currently finalizing arrangements for other provinces and territories, so more announcements are expected soon.
“As a leader in international snowmobiling, the OFSC is pleased to be the first provincial organization to exclusively endorse Power Sports Insurance Solutions as a member benefit,” commented Bruce Robinson, president of the OFSC. “We believe that Power Sports Insurance Solutions will make it easier for existing riders in tough economic times and encourage more people to go snowmobiling.”
Power Sports Insurance Solutions also includes a major commitment to invest in promoting snowmobile safety nationally. The program will work closely with the CCSO and its member organizations to remind grassroots snowmobilers to always make safety their top priority. This new safety partnership is the first of its kind in Canada.
