The Governing Council is made up of ten industry leaders from across Ontario. These individuals are indispensable to our governance as they provide strategic direction that significantly impacts the success of the Insurance Institute of Ontario (IIO). These industry professionals oversee the academic, business, and student affairs of the IIO. All council members generously give their time, expertise, skills and knowledge.
