Echelon Insurance, a CAA Club Group member, is the latest national sponsor of the non-profit Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade (WICC).

“We are very happy to have Echelon Insurance join our growing list of national sponsors,” said WICC Ontario co-chair Marilyn Horrick. “Echelon, along with our other national sponsors, will help us unite and engage the Canadian insurance community with the goal of funding ground-breaking cancer research.”

Horrick added that despite the two years of COVID-19, “cancer has not stopped.” Those afflicted with cancer need support now more than ever, the co-chair said, and that the WICC and its national sponsors understand this dilemma.

“We know that the people working in this industry take giving back very seriously, and we promote that by coming together, to support, educate and improve the lives of more Canadians affected by cancer.”

“We are very proud to announce that we’ve become a National Sponsor with WICC. We chose to partner with WICC because we truly believe in the work they do to further cancer research, awareness, and education,” said Echelon Insurance president Robin Joshua.

Joshua said that WICC is an organization that is “making a real difference in the lives of Canadians across the country,” noting that Echelon has supported many of WICC’s efforts in the past. The president prefaced that the company is excited to continue contributing to WICC’s mission in the years ahead.

WICC’s national sponsorship program provides employee engagement and corporate recognition opportunities for companies looking to donate to a nationally established charity of choice.

Other insurers that have signed on as national sponsors with the non-profit include AIG Canada, AppCentrica Inc., BELFOR Restoration Services, Canadian Underwriter Magazine, CHUBB Insurance, CNA Canada, Crawford & Company (Canada), Echelon Insurance, Economical Insurance, INFORMCO Inc., Liberty Mutual Canada, NFP Canada, Northbridge Insurance, On Side Restoration Services, ROAR Engineering, Steamatic Canada, Travelers Insurance, Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company, and Wawanesa Insurance.

Prior to Echelon, CNA Canada was the most recent insurer to become WICC’s national sponsor.
