Simply Benefits is proud to be nominated for the 2022 Insurance-Canada.ca Technology Awards (ICTA) for our digital employee benefits management platform trusted by Canadian Benefits Advisors and their employer clients. 

About Insurance-Canada.caInsurance Canada Logo

Since 1995, Insurance-Canada.ca Inc. has provided both consumers and insurance professionals with independent and impartial information about technology and the business of insurance in Canada through events, blogs, emails, consulting services and their website. 

About the Insurance Canada Technology Awards | ICTAs

Technology has become an integral part of our lives and our businesses even as it evolves at an ever-faster rate. Insurance industry practitioners – insurers, brokers, claims services providers, providers of other insurance services – have made innovative and beneficial uses of these technologies to respond to customer expectations, to gain efficiencies, to improve customer, partner and employee service and to become more competitive.

Innovation, disruption, and InsurTech have contributed to an increasingly digital and customer-focused insurance ecosystem. New risks – cyber, climate, crypto, etc. – are being addressed. New approaches include on-demand, parametric and embedded insurance.

The Insurance Canada Technology Awards – or “ICTAs” – highlight and celebrate the use of technologies that impact insurance. They have been awarded annually since 2010. The ICTAs are sponsored by the Canadian Broker Network. To be eligible, each nominee must be involved in the Canadian insurance business as an Insurer, Distributor (broker, agent, MGA, etc.), or Supplier and meet specific criteria as part of the Nominations Process. 

Winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony on June 22, 2022 📅
