CAUT Affinity Programs

The following is taken from the CAUT website, and presents a number of affinity programs and discounted services available to SFUFA members by virtue of our membership in CAUT. SFUFA plays no role in the arranging or administration of these partnerships, and provides this page for information only.

Affinity Programs

Because of its national scope and large buying power, CAUT has been able to negotiate special rates and services with several businesses and financial service corporations. These services provide added value to membership within CAUT and provide alternatives for CAUT members when facing decisions concerning travel, insurance, mortgages, investments, and credit cards.*

Budget Rent-a-Car (Call 1-800-268-8900 and quote CAUT’s corporate account # A253000)

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 Johnson Inc. 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.

Travel Insurance

Traveling outside Canada and wish to obtain travel insurance for trip cancellation and emergency medical coverage? Johnson Insurance has teamed up with MEDOC to provide CAUT members with a comprehensive group travel health insurance plan. For an online quote, please go to the CAUT/Johnson website, and click on the Travel Insurance tab.

Life and Personal Accident Insurance

Administered by Lee-Power & Associates, CAUT members have access to Optional Life and Personal Accident insurance coverage through Great-West Life, the largest insurer of group insurance plans in Canada. Your national association has negotiated benefit improvements which reflect the realities of today’s needs at discount rates for all members, spouses and their children.
