Kanetix.ca named group insurance provider for ASCII Canada

Members of ASCII Canada are now eligible for a highly competitive commercial insurance package

Toronto, ON (Mar. 26, 2013) – KTX Insurance Brokers announced today that the company will be the group insurance provider for ASCII Canada, Canada’s largest independent information technology association with more than 300 members.

“KTX is excited to be the group insurance provider for ASCII Canada. Our shared passion for technology is a great foundation for our new relationship,” said Sean Graham, Principal Broker at KTX Insurance Brokers.

As one of the top technology insurance offerings for IT industry professionals, KTX has worked closely with ASCII Canada to create a group membership program that offers great coverage options at a low premium to entice members to carry Technology Errors & Omissions (E&O) and Commercial General Liability (CGL) coverage.

By acquiring Errors and Omissions coverage, members would be protected from intellectual property infringement, security breach, privacy breach, data personal injury, and much more. The Commercial General Liability coverage on the other hand, would protect members against bodily injury and property damage, advertising injury, additional insured such as independent contractors, and non-owned automobile liability.

“We are excited about our new partnership with KTX Insurance Brokers and Kanetix.ca. We believe it is vital for every one of our members to maintain business insurance, especially as more of their clients require it,” said Doug Young, COO and Senior Vice President of The ASCII Group. “The program that KTX Insurance Brokers is offering the ASCII membership, along with their industry experience, makes them a natural fit for us and we look forward to a long-term partnership.”

The unique commercial insurance package is available to all Canadian ASCII members with less than $350,000 in annual revenues. If the member’s annual revenue is higher than $350,000, these members still have the benefit of going through KTX Insurance Brokers since they get a discount on standard IT insurance products of up to 15 per cent.

How can ASCII Canada members get IT insurance? The ASCII Canada members have two options to get Technology Insurance for IT industry professionals:
