The following template was created in 2017 for use between a Health Care Agency (insured by HCPP) and the University of Toronto. While originally drafted by Vancouver Coastal Health, this template has blanket approval for use by all Health Authorities. With the recent launch of the Non-UCIPP Educational Institution Affiliation Agreement Template in March of 2023, it is our hope this new template will be suitable for use with any Non-UCIPP post-secondary Institution including U of T. When existing U of T education affiliation agreements come up for renewal, please consider a transition to the Non-UCIPP template. If transitioning to the Non-UCIPP template presents undue challenges, the U of T template remains approved for use.
Please note: The indemnities granted by the HCA in the above templates have received blanket indemnity approval. The associated blanket indemnity approval letters can be found under Risk Management > Indemnification Approval (access available to members only)
