Toronto, June 27, 2023 — The Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) is pleased to announce that Unica Insurance Inc. (Unica) has maintained its support of the Broker Identity Program (BIP) at the Full Partner level.
Unica’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.
“Our ongoing collaboration with IBAC is a testament to our commitment to the broker channel, which we recognize as a vital part of the insurance landscape. It is the brokers’ unique ability to offer informed advice, choice, and advocacy to consumers that sets them apart, and it’s why we continue to invest heavily in this channel. We are proud to stand with IBAC in their mission to promote the value and professionalism of insurance brokers, and we are committed to supporting initiatives that enhance their abilities to serve Canadian consumers.,” said Unica Senior VP of Operations Jennifer Ronca.
“We are very pleased that Unica has renewed our partnership,” said IBAC CEO Peter Braid. “Unica is a strong proponent of the value that insurance brokers bring to the client experience, which is demonstrated by their commitment to conduct business exclusively through the broker channel. Their investment will support our efforts in advocating and promoting the best interests of insurance brokers and consumers.”
