Who we are
Since 1964, Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) has been championing issues that directly affect Canadians and the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry. IBC is the national industry association representing Canada’s private home, auto and business insurers. Its member companies represent 90% of the P&C insurance market in Canada.
IBC’s vision is for consumers and governments to trust, value and support our industry and the products it sells. The IBC team is on the front line in creating and maintaining relationships with governments and regulators, contributing to public policy objectives on files as diverse as earthquake and extreme weather preparedness, emergency response, auto insurance, financial sector regulation, public safety awareness and financial literacy.
We work with many stakeholders to promote systems that foster competition and attract capital. Healthy competition benefits consumers by providing the best array of choice and pricing. We also identify emerging issues and work to shape responses that promote a sustainable and affordable business environment. A well-informed and well-served consumer is central to IBC’s vision for the marketplace.
IBC helps keep the insurance industry strong, and the industry helps power Canada’s economy by assuming the risk inherent in running a business, owning a home or driving a car.
What we need
Directly reporting to the President and CEO, the Vice-President, Communications, is a critical senior position within IBC, helping shape and execute advocacy strategies and leading the writing, digital and traditional media strategy, internal communications and events functions. The ideal candidate is a strategic thinker, leader, coach, team player and experienced manager of people.
The role requires outstanding communication skills, the ability to build and nurture relationships across all of IBC’s departments, and a leader who understands the intersection between communications, policy and advocacy. An important part of the role is to work with IBC’s regional vice-presidents in the development and execution of advocacy strategies across the country.
IBC produces hundreds of written materials each year, including speeches, reports, articles, op-eds, key messages, position papers, news releases, brochures, member communications, correspondence and online content. It is also involved in over 200 events every year, from IBC-hosted symposiums and speaking engagements, to sponsorships, in-the-community consumer outreach and trade shows.
The Vice-President, Communications, ensures the department is producing the highest-quality communications products to meet IBC’s communication needs. The Vice-President, Communications, will oversee a highly collaborative team that ensures IBC’s communications functions are serving the organization’s needs, and will ensure all areas are operating in a coordinated fashion to maximize their effectiveness.
