Q: Why are Virtual Symposium webinars in the afternoon only?
A: We're being mindful that the volume of usage for internet and phone services
is likely higher in the morning, especially for those who correspond
with counterparts across Canada. Hosting the webinars in the afternoon
will alleviate pressure on connectivity capacity and minimize potential connectivity
issues during prime morning hours.
Q: If my circumstances change and I can't attend anymore after I've registered, can I get a refund?
A: Yes. Due to ongoing developments related to
COVID-19, we're offering flexibility and consideration in our offerings.

a Difficult Market to Success
Mark Woodall, President – Special Risk Insurance Managers
The insurance industry is moving into an era of hard,
changing and unstable markets. The capital within the insurance community is
being reduced which in turn reduces the amount of insurance coverage available
and consequently, tightens the market. In the next couple of years, we can
expect a reduction of insurance coverage/capacity which will necessitate a
change of approach by insurance professionals. Discover strategic approaches to
navigate an unstable and difficult market. Learn how to tackle the traditional
pit falls of a changing market and be successful in difficult
Day 1 - April 21 | Session B at 3:00 - 4:15 pm
Claims & Privacy: The Epidemic of Connectivity in Canada
Jason Conley, Digital Forensics Examiner – Envista Forensics
Canadians have been slow to recognize
the value of transferring risk with insurance policies. Yet, the increase and
impact of highly organized cyber criminals continue to rise at an alarming rate.
In November 2018, the Data Privacy Act took full effect, making it mandatory for
Canadian organizations of all types to report suspected data breaches to both
the Government and to the victims. What are the statistics telling us? What
steps should be taken to adjust to a new threat landscape that isn't going

Continuity Planning: An Essential Tool in Disaster Risk Management
W. Scott Raesler, CD, Dip (CS), BA, MA, President – 3Si Risk Strategies Incorporated
Business continuity plans (BCP) are focused on
minimizing preventable disruptions to the essential programs and services of an
organization. It describes processes and practices to restore and resume
business as efficiently as possible when disaster strikes. To be truly effective
in these extreme circumstances, BCPs need to be part of a larger dynamic
emergency and risk management program that is integrated into daily operations.
BCPs need to be practically tested to mitigate a combination of the most likely
and severe threats an organization faces. Case studies will be used to highlight
how embedding these concepts within the culture of an organization will
significantly enhance the resiliency of a business and limit the impact of even
the most destructive disasters.
Day 2 - April 22 | Session D at 1:45 - 3:00 pm
Change: Municipal Legal Risks & Risk Management
Adrienne Atherton, Partner – Civic Legal LLP
Insurers are well-aware of the impacts of climate
change, which include an increase in extreme weather events, resulting in
property damage and increased liability risks. Case studies will be used to
identify the liability and regulatory risks and impacts that climate change may
have on local governments. What are the potential legal defences available to
local governments when faced with claims, including those anticipated in the
newly developing area of natural asset management? Risk management strategies
applicable to local governments in the development of their climate change
resiliency plans will be discussed.
Day 2 - April 22 | Session E at 3:30 - 4:45 pm
Adapting Urgently to Build Resilience
Dr. Lori Daniels, Professor – University of British Columbia
Wildfire is an essential process in forest
ecosystems but can be incredibly destructive in the wildland-urban interface.
Successful adaptation must include individuals and communities learning how to
coexist with wildfire. Land-use change, fire exclusions and global warming have
made many forests highly susceptible to intense, volatile fires that are
difficult to control, and thus spread quickly. What actions should citizens take
to improve societal resilience to climate change and coexist with
