Group Insurance

The Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan is also offered through Chamber membership in the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

A good plan will provide a tax-effective way to compensate employees, reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and promote health and well-being. Regardless of your budget, we can help you design a plan that is aligned with your corporate philosophy. We’ve worked with companies from a variety of industries in various stages of business from “start up” to multi-generation. Our proven track record means you are going to get the right plan at the right price. As an independent insurance broker, we work for you not the insurance carrier. We are always looking for ways to cut costs, fix expenses and reduce claims on your behalf. Our goal is to help you maximize the return on every dollar you invest in your Employee Benefit plan.

Program

Our Business Protection Program is a comprehensive business insurance program designed specifically for local chambers and boards of trade.

The Business Protection Program offers peace of mind by bundling key insurance coverages into one convenient package. Best of all, we made sure to keep the rates competitive and affordable for our members. The Business Protection Program provides the following coverage:

  • Property and Contents
  • Commercial General Liability and Umbrella
  • Directors and Officers – Not for Profit
  • Comprehensive Cyber Network Security
  • Business Interruption
  • Crime
  • Legal Expense/Tax Investigation Fees
  • Equipment/Computer Breakdown

We know chamber members are busy running their organizations, so we have worked hard to make obtaining insurance a quick and easy process. Getting a quote is simple, and binding coverage is even easier.

CIRA: Protecting Your IT Infrastructure from Attack

Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) brings us an affordable cloud-based cyber security solution to you and your chamber members.

CIRA is a non-profit organization best known for managing the .CA domain on behalf of all Canadians. While this remains their primary raison d’être, CIRA has a much broader mandate to strengthen Canada’s Internet. Every day they work towards this goal through the development of products, programs and partnerships that improve the safety and security of our online ecosystem.

Cyber security is the business challenge of our time. High-profile attacks are simple to execute and can take your chamber and your members business offline and turn your customers away.

Distributed Denial-Of-Service (DDoS) is a form of electronic attack involving multiple computers, which send repeated requests to a server to over load it and render it inaccessible for a period of time.

DDoS attacks against Canadian IT infrastructure were up 71% in the past year making it a good time to review your IT infrastructure security strategy.

CIRA helps keep your websites and applications online by protecting them from DDoS attacks, while also giving you the ability to lock your domain name and avoid another common security hack called, “domain hijacking” that can be used to embarrass your company or to steal your customer’s information. 

Members of CWCC will receive a 50% off discount on their D-Zone Anycast and Domain Lock services.
