Toronto, May 9, 2022 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Intact Insurance Company has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.
Intact’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.
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.
“As a customer-driven and values-based company, Intact is pleased to continue supporting the Broker Identity Program at the full partner level,” said Louis Gagnon, CEO, Intact Financial Corporation, Canada. “Our relationship with brokers is critical to our growth and success. We are grateful to all of our broker partners across Canada as they continue to deliver second-to-none customer experiences and act as customer advocates.”
“We greatly appreciate Intact’s continued investment in IBAC’s programs and services,” said Peter Braid, IBAC CEO. “Our long-standing partnership clearly demonstrates Intact’s strong commitment to the broker channel, and their recognition of the important role of the broker in providing expert advice and advocay for insurance consumers.”
