Risk management and insurance in Aboriginal communities: NH15-328/1999E-PDF

"The cost of insurance is often three times higher in Aboriginal communities than in comparable non-Aboriginal communities. Research has shown that less than half of this extra cost can be justified because of the extra risks involved. It appears that insurance companies and brokers are unfamiliar with Aboriginal communities and thus tend to overestimate the risks, leading them to set the price of insurance policies very high"--Executive Summary.
