“What’s Next?!” - Think Insurance!

While Canada Career Month may be drawing to a close, your exploration of careers and taking the next steps in making a career connection can definitely still be in full swing.

If you find yourself asking “What’s Next?” in considering your career options, think insurance!

Why? Well, first off insurance is connected to virtually everything we do in life and in business. This makes insurance a far broader industry than we may initially realize. It also puts insurance at the forefront of game changing issues in our economy – e.g. blockchain, cyber security, sharing economy, climatic change, etc. This, in turn, means that the industry offers a wide array of rewarding career paths where you can apply your interests, education, and experience.

Feed the Minds of Youth 2017

November 1st, 2017 marked our annual Feed the Minds of Youth/Take Your Kids to Work day which included over 70 luncheons and events held at local Institute chapter offices and insurance organizations across Canada. The combined efforts of everyone supporting this day resulted in over 1100 grade 9 students being reached as they learned about careers in the insurance industry. We couldn’t be more thankful for the tremendous support of everyone who was involved in putting together these events and are pleased to report yet another round of extremely positive feedback from participants, parents, and partners. Please see below for some highlights!

Canada Career Month

November is Canada Career Month! An initiative of the Canadian Council on Career Development, this month is focused on supporting Canadians in finding meaningful and personally satisfying work. Career Connections is a proud partner and is amplifying our message to our core audiences during this national celebration of finding a rewarding career path. Here are just a few of the highlights of what we have planned.

Fort McMurray Wildfires - One year later

It's been a year since wildfires engulfed Fort McMurray forcing 80,000 residents from their homes in the largest wildfire evacuation the province of Alberta has ever seen. But that wasn't the only record that was broken - with approximately 2500 homes burned to the ground, and hundreds more left with smoke, water and other damages - the wildfires were also the costliest insured disaster in Canadian history!

Extreme Weather and the Insurance Industry - Flooding

Spring showers bring May flowers - but they can also lead to flooding. The impacts of extreme weather can be great in magnitude and affect the lives and livelihoods of individuals, neighbourhoods or entire communities. Due to the impacts of climate change, flooding has become more and more prevalent worldwide, and has become the most frequent natural hazard in Canada.
