Risk Management Scholarship

The Municipal Insurance Association of British Columbia is pleased to announce the availability of scholarship funds for its members.   

This scholarship program has been established to encourage and promote the study of risk management among MIABC members.  Consideration will be given to all applicants who demonstrate career goals and educational objectives including support within their organization. 

Introduction to Risk Management and Commercial Lines Insurance – Insurance Institute of Canada.

This is an introductory course that provides the student with an overview of how to determine the needs of an insured. You begin with risk management, in which insurance is only part of a general approach to managing the insured's exposure to loss. Commercial property insurance, commercial liability insurance and business interruption insurance are then introduced. This course is available through distance learning.  For more information please contact the Insurance Institute of Canada (416) 362-8586 ext. 229.

CRM Program – Canadian Risk Management Council

There are three risk management courses required for completion towards the CRM Diploma.  These courses include Risk Assessment, Risk Control, and Risk Financing. The names of these courses may differ depending on the institution. 

These courses are offered in a classroom setting at Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre.  Simon Fraser University also provides a classroom setting  in Victoria, based on a minimum number of registrants.  Distance learning is available from the University of Toronto.  For more information about the courses and dates please contact the universities directly or visit their respective web sites.

The MIABC’s Member Services Committee has extended the Scholarship Program to cover the cost of the Risk Management Society’s (RIMS) three day Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) workshop. Individuals who complete this workshop and already hold a CRM designation will be eligible to apply for a CRM-E designation.
