Two key factors are impacting Canada's P&C insurance industry: demographic change and technological-driven change

Over the next decade, the insurance industry will be redefined by the emergence of innovations in telematics, artificial intelligence, and other digital technologies. At the same time, demographic factors, including retirement trends and a diversifying workforce, are shaping the industry of tomorrow.

What are the impacts and how can the industry better prepare to tackle new challenges? This fall, join the Insurance Institute on a multi-city tour to learn about the findings coming out of two new important reports:

1. Demographics of the P&C Insurance Industry in Canada
2. A Changing Workforce: Implications of Technological Disruption for the Insurance Industry in Canada

Seminar Presenters:
Michael Burt, Director, Industrial Economic Trends - Conference Board of Canada
Margaret Parent, Director, Professionals' Division - Insurance Institute of Canada

Hoarding isn't new but it is a causal link in many preventable high loss/fatal fires. An estimated 3-6% of the population suffers from the disorder known as Obsessive Compulsive Hoarding. Although Hoarding is only responsible for a small percentage of fires (0.25%), when fires do occur, it is attributable to a disproportionate number (24%) of fatal, high loss fires. In this session, you will learn what can be done to tackle this complex disorder and prevent these occurrences.

Seminar Objectives:
-Examine Hoarding and its causes
-Discuss the complexities of Hoarding and its financial impact on the community
-Explain how harm reduction strategies for Hoarding help to prevent fires and loss of life and property
-Review potential solutions and the ongoing work being done to reduce the hazard of Hoarding
-Explore case studies
-Learn from a Fire Investigator the challenges faced when fires occur in Hoarding situations including: Risk Assessment, Scene Stabilization, Material Removal, Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) & Biological Hazards (Biohazards)

Seminar Presenters:
Alan Millbank, GIFireE, IAAI-FIT, IAAI-CI, CFEI, CFII, Fire Prevention Officer - City of Nanaimo

Oct 25 Whiskey & Learn - Vexatious Litigants Ottawa Chapter Office 300-1335 Carling Ave., Ottawa, ON Speaker(s): Anne Herriotts, Senior Loss Adjuster, FCIP Claims Adjuster, Charles Taylor Adjusting Fees: IIO Member Early Bird (until Sept25): $80.00 Organizer: Insurance Institute Contact: 613-722-7870 https://www.insuranceinstitute.ca/en/insurance-education/events/Event?eventId=10702 Join us to discuss "Rising to the Challenge of Vexatious Litigants"

Handling a claim with a self-represented plaintiff usually means additional time, legal defence costs and frustration.

We talk about vexatious litigants, but there are a range of other options available that are less extreme than having the plaintiff declared a vexatious litigant. Picking the right strategy in the initial handling and litigation could mean the difference between timely resolution and prolonged litigation. Having pleadings struck, summary dismissal, case conference, or a motion for securities for costs are all available options.

Following the presentation we will proceed to the Whiskey Tasting. Under the expert guidance of our knowledgeable whisky host, you will discover the beauty, mystery and humour behind many of Scotlands age-old traditions.

The price of our Whiskey & Learn includes refreshments and snacks.
