Insurance Business Canada Awards winners revealed


The wait is finally over for all of the finalists of the Insurance Business Canada Awards. The winners of the 2019 awards show were unveiled last night at a gala event held at the Liberty Grand ballroom in Toronto, as insurance professionals from across the country came together to celebrate top achievers from their industry.


The fourth annual Insurance Business Canada Awards show was a star-studded event, complete with gowns and tuxes, victory speeches, high spirits, and, of course, the coveted Insurance Business trophies, which recognized winners from 21 categories this year. The gala event was produced by Key Media – the organization behind Insurance Business magazine and insurancebusinessmag.com – which has seen interest in the awards show grow tremendously since its inception.


“It’s exciting how much the awards show has grown over the past four years,” said Jessica Duce, Key Media’s project director for the Insurance Business Canada Awards. “It is now a sold-out event with over 600 industry professionals in attendance, and the winners represent the best of the industry. It takes determination, innovation, and teamwork to build a thriving business and their contributions have helped make the Canadian insurance industry what it is today.”
