Virtual Panel: The State of the Canadian Insurance Broker

May 12, 2021, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Join IBAS President & CEO Derek Lothian from 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, as he moderates a special, 90-minute panel discussion on the issues, trends, and opportunities facing insurance brokerages across the country.

Registration is free, is eligible for 1.5 CE credit hours for IBAS members, and is open to member brokers only. This event will be held via Zoom Webinar. Panelists include:

  • Peter Braid, CEO, Insurance Brokers Association of Canada;
  • Colin Simpson, CEO, Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario;
  • George Hodgson, CEO, Insurance Brokers Association of Alberta; and
  • Grant Wainikka, CEO, Insurance Brokers Association of Manitoba.

Topics will range from market conditions and the carrier landscape to insurance regulation and technology — with questions submitted directly by you! Login information will be distributed to all registered participants by e-mail on the afternoon of Monday, May 10.

This is a great opportunity to take the pulse of what is happening in other jurisdictions across Canada and gauge how those pressures are impacting — or may eventually impact — brokers in Saskatchewan.

If you have questions or comments, please contact IBAS Manager of Community Engagement Kyle Halvorson at A special thank you to our Presenting Partner for this panel: Portage Mutual Insurance!
