Ethics Columns

The CIP Society has been publishing a quarterly column on professional ethics in industry trade magazines since 2007. These columns are intended to engage our members and the insurance community in the practice of ethical thinking and decision-making. Given the timelessness of many of these ethical dilemmas, we archive the articles here for your reference, and encourage you to watch for future articles in Canadian Underwriter.
