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 also an opportunity for the insurance community to come together and commemorate the professionalism of the industry and its people.

This year's convocation took place on February 1, 2019 at Deer Creek Golf Course in Ajax. Congratulations to our graduates!

Next year's convocation is scheduled for February 7, 2020. Graduates will be sent further details by email. If you have any questions, you can also email us at

We hope you can join us to celebrate!

Graduate Rings:

It's a very memorable token of the incredible achievement by our graduates in earning their designation and will be a tradition we look forward to carrying on for our members in the years to come.”
