Under the direction of the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC), IBAS actively contributes to the advancement of national policy priorities, including through participation in IBAC committees and in its annual Parliament Hill Day, which was held most recently on May 29, 2018, in Ottawa.
In total, the Canada-wide delegation met with more than 120 members of parliament, senators, and senior bureaucrats. The Saskatchewan contingent — which consisted of IBAS CEO Derek Lothian, along with two representatives from the IBAS board of directors and two from the YBN executive committee — participated in close to a dozen meetings, including with Hon. Ralph Goodale and Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Official Opposition. Topics of discussion included the statutory review of the Bank Act, overland flooding and wildfires, as well as cannabis legalization.
