ClaimsPro, Canada’s largest independent adjusting and claims management company, announced on Thursday that it is becoming a member of the Canadian Independent Adjusters’ Association (CIAA).
ClaimsPro, has not historically participated as a member of the association, which was formed in 1953.
The Toronto-based CIAA was created as an industry body established to promote and represent common business interests of licensed independent adjusters within the insurance industry. Its mission is “to provide leadership for Canada’s independent adjusters through advocacy, education and recognition of professional standards,” the association said on its website.
Historically, ClaimsPro has not participated as a member of the association, “however recent discussions with the CIAA executive have given ClaimsPro comfort that the CIAA is better aligned with its interests and will provide greater benefits for the industry and its members as a whole,” the company said in a press release. “In addition, ClaimsPro will also have the opportunity to become a key component of the association’s executive leadership.”
Ross Betteridge, president of ClaimsPro, said in the release that the company is pleased to join the CIAA and to engage with the broader independent adjuster community. “We believe this decision further demonstrates our leadership in the industry and we look forward to being an active member in helping to set the strategic agenda for the association,” he said.
Albert Poon, president of CIAA, added that “we are very excited to welcome ClaimsPro into the only organization solely representing the professional interests of the Independent Loss Adjusting profession. The addition of ClaimsPro represents a significant increase in resources and expertise for the CIAA and will be of considerable benefit for all members.”
ClaimsPro has been working with Canada’s domestic insurance market for more than 25 years and has offices in every province throughout the country.
