An evening of celebration at the 2017 Insurance Business Awards

Reliability ∙ Growth ∙ Innovation

On November 30, insurance professionals came together to recognize outstanding accomplishments within our industry at the 2017 Insurance Business Awards.

The Liberty Grand provided the perfect setting for the industry’s most elite award gala. The evening opened with an elegant cocktail reception and silent auction followed by the awards dinner gala. Celebrity Jessi Cruickshank guided the evening and entertained the guests as the host of the awards ceremony.





It was our distinct pleasure to sponsor and present the FIRST Insurance Funding of Canada Award for Lifetime Achievement to Mr. Ross Totten, founder of Totten Insurance Group and current President & CEO of HRT Consulting Inc. Mr. Totten has made substantial contributions to the insurance industry for the past four and a half decades.

He now consults with start-up MGA’s, domestic and international companies, retail brokers and specialty markets on a variety of areas in the claims, marketing, operations and distribution fields. We were honoured to recognize Mr. Totten’s career accomplishments surrounded by the industry’s best and brightest.




Congratulations to all of the evening’s award recipients.


It truly was a night to remember. We look forward to celebrating our great industry with you again next year.
