Frequently Asked Questions

A Certificate of Currency is the written document issued by QGIF that confirms your Agency’s insurance policy is current and valid as at the date of the certificate.

There are a number of reasons why you may need a Certificate of Currency.  Often, it’s because a third party (an individual or company) that you are dealing with in relation to the performance of a particular activity or service has requested it in order to obtain proof that your Agency is adequately insured.

It is important to note that supplying a third party with a Certificate of Currency does not in any way, extend the insurance protection afforded to the Agency by QGIF to the third party requesting it.  The third party will need to have their own insurance cover.

It is a good idea to discuss any contractual arrangement with your Agency’s legal service provider.
