Home, Auto Insurance & Professional Property Insurance

CAUT’s partnership with Belairdirect (previously Johnson Insurance*) is stronger than ever. Belairdirect offers competitive rates for home and auto insurance and plan benefits to our members and employees of more than 400 client associations and organizations nationwide.

At this time, Belairdirect offers car insurance and home insurance in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island, and only home insurance in British Columbia.

Many academic staff members use their own equipment at their workplace. Generally, university insurance will not cover personally owned equipment in the event that it is lost, stolen or destroyed. Members of CAUT who insure their homes through Belairdirect may purchase additional protection that will cover professional property, such as books, computers, lab equipment etc. owned by the member, but used in the workplace. The coverage is all-risk, and extends to any location in Canada and the U.S.

As a CAUT member, you are eligible to benefit from Belairdirect’s competitive rates and outstanding service. For an online quote, please go to the CAUT/Johnson or Belairdirect website. Please make sure to use Group Member ‘Canadian Association of University Teachers’ to benefit from your membership discount.

Alternatively, you may also contact Belairdirect by telephone at 1-833-644-7899. Please quote Group ID ‘CAUT’.

*Johnson Insurance has been acquired by Belairdirect.
