The countdown is on for the insurance industry’s most anticipated event – the Insurance Business Canada Awards.

Held at the Liberty Grand in November, this prestigious event celebrates excellence, innovation, and leadership within the insurance sector. Whether you’re a broker, insurer, or industry supporter, this is a gathering you won’t want to miss.

Nominations are now open and will close on July 14.

This is your opportunity to recognize the hard work and achievements of your peers or even nominate yourself for one of numerous awards including the Outstanding Customer Experience Award, Underwriter of the Year, CEO of the Year, and the Steamatic Canada Award for Woman of Distinction.

Melissa Bajwa, a 2023 recipient of the latter award, shared the significance of her win: “Winning the Woman of Distinction award was the most surreal moment in my career. It felt incredibly rewarding to have my contributions recognized and celebrated, especially in a world where the achievements of women are often overlooked.

“Professionally, it opened new doors, providing a platform to advocate for causes I am passionate about, like gender equality and diversity. This recognition has inspired me to mentor and support other women.”

Saad Mered of Zurich Canada, a past recipient of the CEO of the Year award, shared insights into the collaborative efforts that led to his win at the 2023 awards ceremony.

“Receiving this recognition highlights the relentless dedication and teamwork at Zurich Canada,” said Mered. “It has significantly enhanced our reputation, instilling pride and excitement within our team, and has been instrumental in attracting top-tier talent. Our steadfast commitment to excellence and innovation distinguishes us in the industry, and earning the CEO of the Year award has marked a pivotal moment in our journey.”

The IBC nominations process not only celebrates professional achievements, financial success, and client service but also honours those who strive to create lasting impact in the insurance industry by influencing future generations.

“I am proud of the contributions we have made to our community. Through our charitable work, we have raised funds, contributed volunteer hours, and supported initiatives that make a positive impact,” shared Mered.
