Risk Management Plan

SELF-INSURANCE PROGRAM

In partnership with the school boards on the Island of Montréal, the Risk Management Plan (RMP) was established in 1987 to deal with the sharp increase in the cost of liability insurance. 

This self-insurance program assumes tort liability for the participating school boards and the Comité de gestion, or vicarious responsibility for bodily injury, moral damage, and material loss, subject to certain exclusions.

A Policy defines the exact parameters of the RMP, as follows: RGR

 
  • the legal basis;
  • the general framework;
  • the coverage, exclusions, and deductible;
  • the obligations of the school boards and the Comité de gestion;
  • Joining and leaving the program;
  • prevention measures;
  • the compensation fund;
  • the Risk management committee;
  • claims made to the Comité de gestion;
  • interpretation and miscellaneous provisions.
 

Clear benefits

The major benefit of the RMP is the significant savings realized every year since its inception. The economy for the school boards during the year 2015-2016 only is estimated at $723,198. In addition, the RMP protects school boards on the Island of Montreal from sudden fluctuations in insurance premiums.

Membership

The five school boards on the Island of Montréal participate in the RMP. Membership is automatically renewed unless written notice of withdrawal is sent to the Comité de gestion.

Members of the Comité de gestion and commissioners must give written notice to the Comité de gestion of their wish to be covered by the RMP.

COVERAGE

The Risk Management Plan covers school board personnel and commissioners who have indicated their desire to be covered by the program while carrying out their duties:

  • employees;
  • administrators and managers;
  • members of school board committees (institutional councils, advisory committees, etc.);
  • commissioners;
  • members of the Comité de gestion de la taxe scolaire de l’île de Montréal;
  • volunteers.

RANGE OF SERVICES

The Comité de gestion administers the Risk Management Plan. The compensation fund is managed by the Comité de gestion, which assumes the following responsibilities:

  • management and financing of the fund;
  • collection of income and payment of expenses;
  • staffing of expert-advisors of all kinds;
  • production of the annual report;
  • leadership and coordination of the Risk management committee;
  • investigation of all claims;
  • review and statistical reports of events and claims;
  • consulting work;
  • legal opinions;
  • representation before the courts;
  • prevention measures:
    - production of information documents;
    - telephone assistance;
    - presentation of training and educational activities;
    - schools' inspections.
  • financial management of claims;
  • budget and financial statements for the Risk management program.

Specialists trained in the fields of law, inquiry, management, and finances are at the heart of the Comité de gestion team responsible for the RMP. It owes its success to the support of the school boards and the vigilance of the members of the Risk management committee, who are in direct contact with the educational milieu. 

TRAINING SESSIONS

The Legal department of the Comité de gestion offers to the staff members of the school boards different training sessions in civil liability and accident prevention in the school.

These sessions address the questions of civil liability and accident prevention and are mainly intended to school principals but may be adapted to other groups of employees.

These sessions also cover the basic concepts of civil liability and various aspects of accident prevention in the school.
