Good News from the HSMG for Canadians

It’s Here!

Insurance for Canadian soap and bath and body artisans is now here! Affordable insurance is now available to our Canadian colleagues. For just $400, plus $100 for Guild membership, you will have the same great insurance package that our US members enjoy.

Your coverage includes:

$2,000,000 General Aggregate Limit

  • $2,000,000 Products-Completed Operations Aggregate Limit
  • $1,000,000 Personal and Advertising Injury Limit
  • $1,000,000 Each Occurrence Limit
  • $300,000 Damage to Rented Premises Limit
  • $5,000 Medical Expense Limit

Just joining the Guild?

Great! Simply go to the Guild site: and follow instructions. Once you become a member, proceed to the insurance portion and put the insurance package into your account. You will then be directed to the Canadian company to pay.

In a day or two, you’ll be ready to sell in the US and Canada!

Already a member?

Pro-rated terms are also available. Just call the office, 518-306-6934 to get help determining your rate, which will be based upon how much of the year you have left on your membership.

This is an exciting development for the Guild and our Canadian members. Be sure to pass this information along to other Canadian soapmakers!

  • Hi Wendy…So sorry your email hasn’t been answered yet. I’ll see if I can answer it and if not, get someone to address it asap!

    I believe in order to be covered by the insurance, and to become a member of the HSMG, you have to make and sell soap as your main product. The HSMG is for soap makers first and foremost. So, if you have a business where you do soap and then have incidentals like candles, perfume, bath & body products, etc., you can become a member of the HSMG, and can then be covered by the insurance. Unfortunately, if perfume is your only product, you would not qualify for the insurance.

    I hope that helps!
