York Fire Congratulates the IBAO on their successful launch of MyInsuranceShopper.ca

The MyInsuranceShopper.ca website gives Consumers Easy Access to Independent Brokers and Greater Choice when it comes to Buying Insurance

MISSISSAUGA, May 20, 2008 – York Fire & Casualty applauds the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) for the successful launch of their much anticipated MyInsuranceShopper.ca website — a straightforward access point for consumers to the choice, unbiased insurance advice, perfect fit coverage and client advocacy offered by independent Brokers. In conjunction, the IBAO has also developed the “Extend and Own” marketing campaign for their member Brokers which allows them to take advantage of the powerful “insurance that fits” marketing message in their own communities.

“York Fire is 100% committed to the independent Broker distribution channel as the best choice for consumers for knowledgeable insurance purchases,” said Colin Simpson, President and CEO of York Fire. “It is exciting to see the leaps and bounds the IBAO has made in providing their members with the tools to successfully compete head-to-head with direct writers and affinity groups.”

York Fire and Casualty is a proud supporter of the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) and the IBAO and its initiatives to give the independent Broker a strong and united voice and is pleased to congratulate them on their hard work and the innovation of their technology release and media campaign. These initiatives have been designed to meet the challenges facing the independent Brokers in Ontario as they continue promoting, to the consumer, the value the independent Broker brings to the insurance purchase.
