Shining a light on exceptional brokers, brokerages and industry initiatives throughout Ontario.

The Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) is proud to announce the Finalists for their 2023 Awards of Excellence—IBAO’s long-running awards program highlighting achievement across Ontario’s broker channel.

“Our Awards of Excellence program highlights some of the amazing work being done by Ontario brokers,” said Norah Black, VP Marketing & Communications. “This year’s Finalists are admirable examples of what can be accomplished by businesses and individuals who truly care about their clients and communities. Congrats to all.”

A new addition this year, the awards program is being sponsored by Allianz Global Assistance, a leading travel insurance and assistance provider.

“Allianz is proudly partnering with IBAO to show our support for Ontario’s broker channel and to highlight the incredible work Ontario brokers are doing in the insurance industry,” said Roger Marcelo, Allianz’s VP of Business Development – Broker Channel. “We recognize that brokers play a key role in helping their clients navigate important insurance decisions.
