What The PYIB Can Do For You

The PYIB helps to create a better awareness of the insurance industry, improves confidence through communication, and creates a venue for industry peers to meet. We act as a liaison between young broker members and the provincial broker association regarding political involvement and the ongoing changes within our industry. We also help to tailor education to meet the needs of young brokers, get involved with communities at a grass-roots level to help strengthen the broker image, and provide a place for young brokers to voice their opinions and help shape the future of the broker industry.
