I agree to abide by the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club Inc.  By-laws, Code of Ethics, Members’ Code of Conduct, and sports-specific policies and rules. I also agree to be bound by the terms of the following Waiver and Indemnity Agreement if I use the Club's facilities and services.

I recognize that the use of the facilities and services available at the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club as well as sailing, rowing, tennis, and related activities involve potential risks. I undertake, in my personal capacity and those whom I represent, have custody, my heirs and assigns, to indemnify and save harmless the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club, its officers, employees, coaches, independent contractors and other representatives, their successors, heirs and assigns, from and against all claims, damages, loss, costs and expenses relating to any injury including death, or loss of or damage to my or third party's property and arising out of being incidental to my presence at the Club or the practice of the activities mentioned hereinabove.  I acknowledge that I am responsible for the behaviour and safety of my children and my guests.

If I, or any member named on this form, joins the Rowing or Sailing program, I certify that I/he/she can swim 100 metres unassisted, see hazards, and exercise strenuously. The Club has the right, at any time, to ask for a medical certificate specifying that the member’s medical condition does not restrict him or her from taking part in the sport(s) in question; the Club reserves the right to suspend participation pending the provision of this certificate.

I understand that the Club carries no insurance for private boats. The mooring of boats offshore is the complete responsibility of the owners. If applying for rackage, I acknowledge that I have read and understood the ONEC rackage policy.

Waiver must be accepted by both adults if registration is for a Family Membership, and by a parent or guardian if registration is for a Student aged 16 or 17 (submit Parental Permission Form).


In order to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club (“ONEC”), I CONFIRM THAT I HAVE REVIEWED the ONEC COVID-19 Policy (“Policy”) and supporting instruments, which have been made available to me via email and the ONEC website, and that I WILL ABIDE BY the relevant procedures applicable to me as set in the Policy and supporting instruments.

4. I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS ONEC, its officers, officials, agents, and/or employees, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used to conduct the event (“RELEASEES”), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL ILLNESS, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
