The industry event of the year is almost here.

Insurance Business Canada is pleased to announce the third annual Insurance Business Canada Awards taking place November 29 at the Liberty Grand in Toronto – an event sure to whip the industry into a frenzy.

Just like other Insurance Business Award ceremonies around the globe, this black-tie affair brings together over 600 insurance professionals from across the country to celebrate excellence in the industry over the past year. Successes in leadership, service, innovation and support, from individuals and organizations that have changed the insurance industry for the better will be recognized.

And that recognition is quite an experience – as previous Insurance Business Award winners are all happy to confirm.

“I think this is very special – we are being recognized for putting our customers first,” said Stephanie Dudley from Northbridge Insurance, which won the DKI Canada Award for P&C Insurer of the Year in 2017.

“This is a really prestigious award, and I never saw myself standing up here winning it. It shows how much I have progressed in the industry,” said Sharp Insurance’s Nick Wong when accepting the South Western Group Award for Broker of the Year in 2017.

If you know someone – even yourself – who should be on the shortlist for these awards, now is the time to nominate.
