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!

  1. Hi there,
    I am looking for product liabilty insurance. I am having an extremely difficult time finding it in Canada. I do not make soap, but I do make handmade bath and beauty items. Do you provide liabilty insurance for just people who make soap or also people that do not make soap but make many items in the same category?
    Please let me know.
    Thanks so much,
    Lesley Jardine

  2. hi, Lesley,

    I can imagine! Our insurance is geared towards soapmakers, so there is currently a requirement that you offer soap in your product line (even if it’s not your primary source of revenue). The good news is that the insurance covers candles and just about any handmade beauty product. I would be happy to let you know if that ever changes.
