The Canadian Universities Reciprocal Insurance Exchange (CURIE) is a non-profit cost-effective alternative to traditional insurance. Formed in 1988, CURIE is a risk sharing pool with a membership of 61 Canadian universities. CURIE risk management, campus loss control and focused training programs are designed to specifically meet the varied and complicated risks of large and small Canadian universities.


Since 2007, there has been a significant increase in water-related property claims involving CURIE members. Read Bulletin from CURIE

Slips, Trips and Falls accounted for 40% of the CURIE 5 (2008 2012) liability claims costs and 41% of the liability claims count. The average cost per claim increased by 44% during CURIE 5 compared to that of CURIE 4 (2003 2007).
