All tours wishing to travel to another province within Canada need to be sanctioned by the home Provincial Union and the destination Provincial Union.

All registered players travelling within Canada are covered under their Provincial Health Care’s Insurance Policy. However, Rugby Canada’s accident and general liability insurance coverage is only extended to a rugby event which is sanctioned. The practices and league matches of registered clubs are the only competitions considered sanctioned by default when all athletes, team management and staff and all participants (volunteers, organizing committee) are registered within the current membership year.
