Convocation is a special time to honour the hard work and dedication of the Insurance Institute’s newest graduates of the Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) and Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) programs. It is an opportunity for the insurance community to come together and commemorate the professionalism of the industry and its people.

You’re invited to celebrate the graduation of our newest CIPs and FCIPs! Our next Annual Convocation and Awards Ceremony will be held on Thursday March 1, 2018 at Bingemans, located at 425 Bingemans Centre Drive in Kitchener, Ontario.

Register now for this important local industry event! You can purchase single tickets for Convocation, or a flat-rate for a table of eight.

Graduates will be sent further details by mail in January, 2018. If you have any questions, you can also email us at
