Toronto, June 6, 2023 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Red River Mutual has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.

Red River’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.

“The relationship we have with our broker partners is integral to our business success,” says Jennifer Ewankiw, VP of Strategy & Business Development of Red River Mutual. “As we move forward as an industry with technology and data, we want to ensure we are supporting our brokers to move forward alongside us.”

“IBAC welcomes Red River Mutual’s renewed investment and their continued partnership. Their strong support for the broker channel highlights the importance of working together to provide an optimal experience for insurance consumers.” said IBAC CEO Peter Braid.
