(Toronto, ON) The Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario’s (IBAO) Sponsorship Program drew robust support from across the industry for 2018.

“The support of our sponsors allows us to take a strong position in the industry and lead strategic initiatives, including the BrokerFlow data connectivity solution,” said IBAO CEO Colin Simpson. “It’s great to see this level of investment and interest in brokers across Ontario.”

This year SGI CANADA joined the IBAO Sponsorship Program. “We’re very glad to SGI CANADA come aboard this year. With their broker-exclusive business model, they’ve shown a real commitment to the channel,” said Simpson.

Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI CANADA said, “At SGI CANADA we embrace our broker partners. We believe that working in collaboration with brokers makes us both stronger. Brokers provide consumers with a personal connection, exceptional customer service, impartial professional advice and the best possible coverage on their behalf.”

Randy MacFarlane, Regional SVP, SGI CANADA told TOB Magazine, “IBAO’s commitment to ongoing education and developing talent in our business is important work — we’re proud to be a sponsor.”

Sponsorship helps to support many of the IBAO’s initiatives including broker education programs, advocacy and special events. Sponsors are also invited to participate in IBAO-led initiatives and receive greater prominence at annual events including the Young Brokers Conference and IBAO Convention.

“We want to thank all of our 2018 sponsors and we welcome SGI CANADA,” said Simpson.
