Toronto, March 18, 2019 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.

Trisura’s sponsorship will support IBAC’s Broker Identity Program (BIP), a national advertising campaign that raises awareness of the significant value that insurance brokers provide for their clients – choice, advice and advocacy. With a redesigned logo and our new “Before the Quote” platform, the BIP campaign is reinvigorating the brand and highlighting the value of the broker distribution system.

In addition, their investment will contribute to important IBAC initiatives including IBAC’s technology leadership, professional development of the broker workforce, and our strong and effective federal advocacy to maintain the separation of banking and insurance, which protects consumers and promotes a fair and competitive marketplace.

“Trisura owes much of its success to the strong support of our brokers.  We are a broker company and believe that P&C brokers provide a critical service to insurance consumers through advice and advocacy.  Our active involvement with IBAC is a way to support our broker partners on a myriad of issues that are important to both our brokers and their clients.” said Mike George, Trisura’s President & CEO.

IBAC Chief Executive Officer Peter Braid added: “Trisura is a valued IBAC partner that is fully committed to offering their specialty insurance products through the broker channel. We greatly appreciate their continued investment, which reaffirms and underscores the significant value that brokers bring to the insurance experience.”
