Canada has a vested interest in protecting our environment both locally and globally. Our continuously changing legislation is evidence that business owners must take their responsibility seriously, as an environmental disaster could also lead to a financial one.

APRIL`s Pollution Liability policies are designed to respond to the potential environmental and pollution damage arising from business activities. We can offer products to cover both site and contractor`s liability across a wide range of industry sectors.
