Political, Economic, Social and Catastrophic Risks are discussed at RIMS CANADA CONFERENCE
TORONTO – SEPTEMBER 24 – 27
Canada’s thriving risk management community will convene at the 43rd annual RIMS Canada Conference scheduled for September 24 – 27 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. “Community,” this year’s conference theme, illustrates the importance of collaboration and its undeniable impact on risk professionals’ ability to achieve and exceed expectations.
For the first time, RIMS Canada Conference will host the “Pride in Our Community” inclusion event sponsored by Marsh’s Pride Colleague Resources Group. The networking reception is aimed at bringing the risk management community together, fostering understanding and full inclusion of all people and cultures. The event is on Tuesday, September 26 at 9 p.m. at the Canyon Creek Chophouse. Registration is required.
The four-day conference attracts more than 1,000 risk and insurance professionals at all experience levels, business executives with risk management interests, brokers, insurers and service providers for the ultimate educational and networking experience. Conference educational offerings will feature more than 25 concurrent sessions on topics ranging from enterprise risk management and cyber risks, to property, business continuity and social media risks.
“Much like Canada’s risk management community, our host city Toronto is an amazing place built on the wonderfully diverse, intertwined and symbiotic cultures and relationships of its constituents,” said April Savchuk, conference co-chair, and the director of insurance and risk management for Yamana Gold. “Our conference theme ‘Community’ not only embodies the collaborative spirit of the surrounding city but it reflects the sharing culture that has allowed this profession to grow and prosper.”
“Year-after-year, RIMS Canada Conference delivers a powerful agenda that is dependent on our exceptionally talented and informed network of volunteers and industry partners,” said Karin McDonald, conference co-chair and the director of risk and insurance at Hydro One Networks, Inc. “Together, we have, once again, created an exciting program that offers highly relevant content for practitioners of all experience levels, industries and backgrounds.”
