Cyber-risk is one of the most discussed topics in the insurance industry right now. Beyond the conversation is the reality that it really is a critical risk facing all businesses today. Cyber risk coverage varies widely in the marketplace, with policies often drafted with a “one shoe fits all” approach with little opportunity to customize coverage to match the needs and exposures of the client.

Trisura is pleased to introduce our new Comprehensive Technology & Cyber Liability Package, which can be specifically tailored for IT professionals in order to address their unique security and professional needs.

We understand that no two businesses are the same and that’s why we created a modular approach that permits full customization and includes first and third party coverages. One can bundle third party coverages for Professional & Technology Services, Media & Advertising Liability, Technology Products Liability and Network Security and Privacy Liability, with several market leading first party coverages of Network Extortion Threats, Business Interruption, Data Protection and System Restoration, and Reward Expenses. In addition, many losses can be avoided through a single phone call to an expert and that is why we have included unlimited privacy breach consulting services in our policy, a service provided by IDT911.


      • Unlimited Breach Consulting Services
      • Distinct insuring agreements provide affirmative third party coverage for:
        • Professional and Technology Services Liability
        • Media and Advertising Liability (includes Intellectual Property Coverage)

Our policy also gives clients the enhanced ability to link their coverage with our Commercial General Liability and Property policies.

The Calgary Trisurians were at it again, this time decked out in bright-red, full-body-spandex to take part in the 4th annual Lloyd Sadd Risky Rocks Curling Funspeil tournament, hosted by the Garrison Curling Club of Calgary. From Batman to Breaking Bad, participant teams sported a variety of entertaining costumes, fitting with the tournament’s free-spirited approach to serving a charitable cause.

Trisura’s foursome especially enjoyed taking part as they ended up taking home the first place trophy. A big congratulations to Jonathan Hope, Richard A. Grant, Ante Susnjar, and John Thorpe for curling to glory in style, all for a good cause. Whether dressing up in head-to-toe spandex or dressing down to their skinnies, these Trisura folk will go the extra mile in order that those less fortunate might benefit.

Proceeds from the tournament were donated to The Calgary Food Bank (CFB). Established in 1982, the CFB has been providing invaluable support to working-poor Calgarians who are struggling to make ends meet. Over 130,000 received support in 2014 alone, meaning every donation makes a difference in the lives of those in need, and the need is ever growing.

Toronto hadn’t seen rain like this for months. The night before Trisura’s Steve Carreiro placed his cardboard and sleeping bag on the pavement, 18 mm of precipitation fell (more than the entire month of March and most of February). The rain continued well into the next day as Steve and 56 other business and community leaders prepared themselves to give up the dryness and comfort of their homes to sleep in the streets for a night; the requirement for taking part in Covenant House’s annual charity event.

The Covenant House Next Generation Sleep Out took place the night of April 9th, 2015, and has raised over $209,000 so far, well beyond the goal of $190,000. Steve followed suit, also exceeding his donation target thanks to the generosity of friends, family, and co-workers. “Lights out for the soggy slug!!” was the message from Steve in the late hours of the night, “Fighting the elements to bring awareness to youth homelessness. This has been an unbelievable experience”. He also took the opportunity to further extend his thanks to donators for supporting such a great charity.

Covenant House Toronto is Canada’s largest homeless youth agency, providing a wide range of services to 3,000 youth annually. More than just a shelter, Covenant House educates, counsels, trains, and offers health care services that support less fortunate youth 24/7. Trisura has taken this cause to heart, having participated in past events, and will continue to jump at the chance to do our part in remedying Toronto’s homeless crisis.

Members of Trisura staff and representatives from eight Ontario insurance brokerages carved up the ice in Fort Erie and Port Colborne, Ontario the weekend of March 27-29th for the 34th annual Ontario General Insurance Hockey Tournament. Teams congregated to arenas where the good old hockey game became an avenue to serve a higher cause, as it often does in this great country.

The tournament, which started in 1981 and is organized by local insurance brokers and claims adjusters, is the largest hockey tournament in the insurance industry. Over the years, the event has expanded significantly from its humble beginnings as a 16 team affair to today, when up to 40 teams lace up and skate on.

Trisura dressed two squads to make the journey. Although the games were spirited affairs, neither team was able to make it to the finals. Despite this, our players enjoyed the opportunity to don the green and white jerseys, proudly bearing the Trisura logo across their chests. A big congratulations to all the winners of their respective divisions for taking home the glory this year.

Proceeds from the OGI tournament have been donated to local charities for underprivileged children for 11 years, primarily the organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Niagara, Camp McGovern. To date, donations have exceeded $370,000. The lives of hundreds of children have been enriched thanks to the generosity of those participating in the tournament and its major sponsors.
