Risk & Claims Management
Property Damage or Injury
If you have incurred costs as a result of a claim, for which you believe Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) may be responsible, you must follow the process outlined below for your claim to be considered.
Please note, you are required by legislation to notify the SCRD in writing within two months from the date on which the damage occurred or the claim cannot be considered as per Section 736 the Local Government Act.
How to Make a Claim For:
Damage or loss to your property or home
(i) please contact the SCRD Risk Management Division to ensure they are aware of the incident;
(ii) please contact your personal property or home insurer.
- Damage to your vehicle – please contact ICBC and your private insurer (if applicable) directly. To report an accident and make a claim, please contact ICBC - Dial-a-Claim 1.800.910.4222 or online at www.icbc.com
Notify your insurance company of the damage. Your insurance policy may provide coverage for your damage, and this may be the quickest way to recover costs and have repairs done. Your insurance company may then pursue any party they believe to be responsible for the damage.
