Intact Public Entities partners with risk management software leader ClearRisk, to bring enhanced risk management solutions to municipalities across Ontario

Plymouth, MN (Feb. 16, 2023) – Intact Public Entities (IPE) is pleased to announce their new partnership with ClearRisk to help bring automated risk management solutions to Ontario municipalities. ClearRisk, which also partners with the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), provides cloud-based software solutions that help streamline and automate risk management practices to minimize risks and exposures within a municipality. IPE’s municipal clients are eligible to receive a rebate to help cover the first year start-up costs, making the software more accessible to municipalities province wide.

The importance of an efficient and effective risk management strategy is a top priority for IPE. Helping reduce incidents and claims is all a part of IPE’s comprehensive risk management program.

“We are excited to be partnering with ClearRisk to help municipalities understand, quantify and reduce their total cost of risk. We truly believe in the benefits of this software which is why we are offering a rebate to clients to help with the first year start-up fees.” Larry Ryan, President and Principal Broker, Intact Public Entities.

Through the implementation of ClearRisk’s software, municipalities are able to identify, optimize and reduce risk and better protect their assets through user-friendly insights and analytics. These features will help a municipality’s overall bottom line.

“I was a municipal risk manager and I saw the human and financial costs of risk when not managed effectively. ClearRisk is on a mission to make risk management solutions accessible and simple to use so that every municipality can protect people from harm and control costs. IPE’s commitment to helping their municipal clients is a perfect fit with ClearRisk’s mission.” Craig Rowe, CEO, ClearRisk.

A large percentage of municipal claims are made up of predictable and preventable incidents. By partnering with ClearRisk, IPE hopes municipalities can make the most of digital solutions to lower their total cost of risk.
