Toronto, June 6, 2017 – The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Wynward Insurance Group has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.

The Program’s centre-piece is the BIP symbol known as the BIPPER. The symbol captures the value that insurance brokers bring to their clients: choice, advice, security and peace of mind. By investing in the program, Wynward supports a campaign whose purpose is to raise awareness of the value of the insurance broker distribution network.

“Wynward remains fully committed to the broker distribution network. As a national insurer focused exclusively on the Commercial Property & Casualty market, we place tremendous value on the expertise and advice that brokers provide to customers in an increasingly complex buying environment.” said Darryl Levy, President & Chief Executive Officer of Wynward Insurance Group.

IBAC Chief Executive Officer Peter Braid added: “We are delighted that Wynward Insurance Group is remaining a Full Partner. This renewed commitment to our branding program underscores the important role of insurance brokers in serving and advocating for consumers.”

Launched in 1988, the mission of the Broker Identity Program is to promote the value and professionalism of the insurance broker to consumers, insurers and governments. It is a branding campaign for over 36,000 insurance brokers.
