Cailba President’s Advisory Council


At the CAILBA 2015 Annual Conference, it was announced that one of the 2015 – 2016 Initiatives CAILBA will be working on is the negotiation of MGA contracts with insurance companies. The CAILBA President’s Advisory Council was created for just this purpose.

The council consists of the following CAILBA members:

Terri Botosan, President of HUB Financial Inc.
Paul Brown, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of IDC WIN
Michel Kirouac, Vice président directeur général chez Groupe Cloutier
John Hamilton, President of Financial Horizons Group
Jim Virtue, President and CEO of PPI Solutions
Michael Williams, President of BridgeForce Financial Group Inc. & CAILBA President.

To date, the Advisory Council are reviewing the following insurance company MGA contracts:

BMO Insurance
Empire Life
Manulife Financial
SSQ Financial Group
The purpose of the council is to negotiate win-win contracts for all stakeholders.

We ask that any insurance companies that are looking at revising their MGA contracts to contact CAILBA so the President’s Advisory Council can provide appropriate feedback. The Council will communicate with CAILBA members once negotiations with the various insurance companies have been completed.

If any CAILBA members are thinking of reviewing or currently in negotiations with any of the above mentioned companies, we invite you to contact CAILBA for further details on the status of our discussions with each Carrier before you proceed in signing a new contract.

If you have any questions and/or recommendations, please contact CAILBA Executive Director Clementine Peacock at
