How to Participate

Purchasing livestock price insurance is a three step process:

  1. Complete an Application - Producers are required to complete an application. They can do this by downloading the forms from www.wlpip.ca, completing the required information and submitting their form to their local Crop Insurance office. Producers can also access forms directly from any Crop Insurance office.
  2. Application Approval - SCIC will review and approve the application and forward it to the WLPIP administrator for processing. Once processed the producer will receive two emails from the WLPIP administrator; one verifying account set-up and another containing the activation key. The activation key is required to purchase policies online. It can take up to 48 hours (two business days) to receive the activation key.
  3. Purchase Insurance - The producer will use the activation key to establish their online account. This is done through www.wlpip.ca. Once an online account is created, the producer is able to purchase policies, monitor premiums and coverage levels, pay premiums and file claims. WLPIP is only set up for online purchasing with a credit card. SCIC offices are available to assist producers wherever necessary in completing their WLPIP purchases.

If you are having any problems accessing or purchasing your WLPIP policy online, please contact your local Crop Insurance office. More information can also be found at www.wlpip.ca.
