On behalf of the Board of Festival 2014, I'd like to thank every person who came to Ottawa for our event. We all received so many wonderful comments on how much fun everyone had and how great everything was that we were almost embarrassed.

Thank You to:

  • All the dancers - most of the rooms were full most of the time. Thank you for dancing your feet off. Thank you for coming
  • All the Callers, Cuers, and other leaders - you were awesome! Thank you for giving your time to the dancers
  • All the volunteers - so many of you gave up dance time to help us make Festival the success it was. We couldn't have done it without you.

In hindsight, as with any event, there are things we would have done differently if we could turn back time, but the few things we would have done differently are nothing compared to all the things we would do exactly the same again. We are very proud of the event we put on ... we are very proud of the people who helped to make it so great.

Thank you all for being a part of Festival 2014. You all contributed to making it the successful event it was.

Non Profit Insurance in Ontario

When a person and a company it working with the public it is important that they have the proper insurance protection. Every business sector needs insurance coverage. Non profit insurance Ontario can protect a non profit group if they are sued by the clients that they service.

Non profit organizations work with the community to provide a variety of services to them. Whole non profits work hard to provide these valuable services to the community members of the organization may make mistakes from time to time. Non profit insurance will protect the company if they are sued to a client claiming negligence. If the organization were to lose the case in the court the insurance will cover a certain amount of the money awarded. This will protect the company from shutting down and will allow them to stay in operation.

Clients are not the only ones that may file a lawsuit against a non profit. Employees and former employees may file a claim against the directors of the company. This insurance will help protect the directors from being sued personally. It is not an easy decision to terminate a staff member but in some cases it must be done. Non profit insurance will help protect the company if an employee is suing claiming they were wrongfully terminated.

If a hacker breaks into the computer system and steal confidence information the company is covered. This insurance will help the company recover from a corruption in their data storing, the cost of recovering data, the cost of responding to the breach in security, and any lawsuits that arise from stolen confidential information.

Interruption in Business

There may be times when a non profit may have to stop business operations. This can be due to waiting on funding from the government or donations. This insurance will allow a business to keep on running while they are waiting on these funds. They will continue to be able to serve clients until they get the funding they need.
