Message from Peter Hohman, MBA, FCIP, ICD.D - President & CEO, The Insurance Institute of Canada...

As COVID-19 continues to impact our daily lives, the Institute has had to make the difficult decision to cancel all in-person Convocation ceremonies for 2020-2021. We realize this will be extremely disappointing for our graduates who have worked so hard to reach these milestones. However, our team is working on alternative celebrations that will honour our graduates in a meaningful way while protecting the health and safety of our grads and their families as well as Institute volunteers and staff.

Plans are underway for virtual Convocation ceremonies right across the country that may include many of the familiar elements of our traditional convocations including congratulatory speeches, awards and music. The Institute’s class of 2020 has been forced to demonstrate its resilience and we want to make sure we can come together as a community to celebrate their achievements. As plans are confirmed and dates are set, watch for further updates.
