Monthly Networking Luncheon: Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC)
The Future of Auto Insurance in BC
Join fellow Chamber members on January 9th for a networking luncheon at the Coast Bastion Hotel. The Chamber welcomes Aaron Sutherland, Vice President, Pacific, Insurance Bureau of Canada, as the Keynote Speaker.
Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) is the national association of Canada’s private home, business, and auto insurers. Unlike here in BC, in most other Canadian provinces auto insurance is provided by private insurers in a competitive marketplace – a model that has proven to deliver more affordable auto insurance with increased customer satisfaction. With BC drivers paying more for their auto insurance than anywhere else in the country, Aaron Sutherland, IBC’s Vice-President, Pacific will describe how Canada’s private insurers are eager to better support the BC marketplace and how they can help improve the affordability of auto insurance for BC drivers.
