About Us

mycareer was developed by the Insurance Institute of Canada, on behalf of the industry, to enable people employed in the property & casualty insurance industry to achieve their performance potential and maximize their intellectual development.

The catalyst for its creation stemmed from the recommendations from the Demographic Analysis of the P&C Insurance Industry in Canada, 2012 - 2022, from consultation with Human Resource professionals across the country from 2013 - 2015, from focus group work with early career insurance professionals in 2014, and from experience and insight gained through the Institute's Career Connections program promoting careers in insurance to those not yet in the industry.

mycareer is modeled on theory that career development in the workplace works best when it is employee owned, manager facilitated, and employer supported. Empowering and enabling employees to take ownership of their career can be one of strongest contributors to fostering a climate of engagement within an organization.

This site provides a comprehensive suite of tools and resources designed to empower industry professionals to advance their career and map their education pathways in the property & casualty insurance industry. And for managers, HR and organizations, you'll find tools and resources to support your employees in their insurance career and on-going professional development.
