In response to member feedback we are changing and improving the way we do things by expanding our workshops into a two-day insurance and risk symposium. In addition to offering a greater selection of topics to choose from, we are also expanding the number of members who will benefit from the symposium to include those from the Alberta Seniors Communities & Housing Association (ASCHA).

Our claims department has completed a thorough review of the past year’s claims activity and from this information we have fashioned the new RiskPro 9 Training Module. This year’s session will provide education in both General Insurance and Risk Management to assist our members as they continue to craft their own risk management program by providing a framework, structure and tools to get started.

We will be offering simultaneous sessions to offer a wider variety of content that is applicable to more departments throughout your organization. This will allow us to continue the risk management training and, in addition, revisit the fundamentals of insurance. By using what we have learned from a thorough review of our claims data we will be able to provide tools to assist you to better manage your risks and reduce your exposures.

As in previous years, RiskPro 9 will deal with both property and liability exposures. This year, by offering simultaneous sessions, we will be able to address the following topics in separate sessions:

  • Creating a Risk Management Culture
  • Insurance 101: Coverage Review, Schedules, Communication, and More
  • Equipment Losses and Risk Management
  • Members Moment: Real Life Examples From Our Members
  • Signage Issues and Solutions
  • Parks & Recreation
  • E&O: Permits & Tendering
  • D&O and Wrongful Dismissal
  • Advocacy
  • Automobile Liability
  • Cyber Insurance, Drone Insurance, Legal Expense Insurance (DAS), and Environmental Impairment Liability (EIL)
  • Inspections & Maintenance Schedules
  • Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)
  • Seniors Housing
  • Insurance 101
  • Risk Management
  • Fire Smart

RiskPro 9 begins where RiskPro 1 - 8 left off. In the new module we will continue our efforts to assist our members to protect their assets and operations with the right insurance products, while at the same time, help you to implement systems to identify and evaluate your risks, and then to create risk mitigation strategies to address those risks. 

Remember that you are already purchasing insurance products and practicing risk management every day. The intent of this symposium is NOT to add extra procedures, processes or costs to your municipality; it is designed to assist you with your insurance needs by incorporating risk management into your current systems and beginning the formalization of the processes that you already have in place.

In addition to CAOs and senior administrators, this year we will recommend that each municipality send individuals who are responsible for the following departments to the workshop:

  • Insurance & Risk Management
  • Facility Maintenance
  • Fleet & Equipment Operations
  • Health & Safety
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Housing Administrative Staff

Successfully implementing a risk management program requires the buy in of the entire organization, especially that of the CAO, senior administrators, and Management.

Jubilee is excited to offer such tools in response to the needs expressed by our members. Our team looks forward to working with you at these workshops.

In keeping with this new format we will be inviting multiple guest speakers. The finalized agenda is available below.
