Catastrophic Loss Trends in Canada

In this session, catastrophic event expert Glenn McGillivray, Managing Director of the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction, will speak about the increasing challenges faced by various stakeholders – most particularly governments and insurers – in managing risks associated with severe weather and seismic events.

You’ll learn how severe weather losses are rising across Canada and around the world and what can be expected through the next decade in terms of disaster loss claims and prevention. This engaging session will end with a discussion on ICLR’s work and its efforts to help insurers and others mitigate the impact of severe weather and earthquake events.

Social Media and the Law: Defamation Risks

The increased use of social media in both a business and social context gives rise to a multitude of new potential risks. Statements your client makes on social media can and might be held against them in a court of law, with the cost of litigation for this continuing to rise. Social networks can bolster a reputation, or ruin it, and your client could get caught in the crossfire. This session will arm you with the knowledge you need to better serve your clients in this space.
