WFTDA and WFTDI Acquire Canadian Roller Derby, Incorporated (CRDi)
Together with WFTDI, the WFTDA is pleased to announce its expansion into Canada with the acquisition of Canadian Roller Derby, Incorporated (CRDi). WFTDA intends to continue the current insurance offerings and pricing CRDi members have come to expect. In the coming months, CRDi members can expect to see operations streamlined and automated, to better serve our insureds in Canada.
CRDi began operations in 2009, as the Canadian Women’s Roller Derby Association (CWRDA). In 2013, a reorganization of CWRDA resulted in the incorporation and name change to CRDi, which now covers 95% of the derby teams in Canada. WFTDA was founded in 2005, and began offering insurance to its members in 2008. In 2012, WFTDA Insurance coverage was expanded to include non-member leagues, and in 2013, WFTDA Insurance expanded again to include coverage for minors and junior derby leagues. Today, WFTDA Insurance coverage extends throughout the United States and Canada, and covers more than 20,000 skaters, worldwide. We’re very excited to expand our insurance and membership operations in Canada.
