xis Insurance is sponsoring Sam Danniels, a para-alpine skier based in
Whistler, with a three-year sponsorship. Danniels broke his back two
years ago in a mountain-biking accident, but because of his athletic
background has quickly excelled
as a sit-skier. Funds from Axis
Insurance will contribute to his membership costs in
the B.C. Disabled Alpine Ski Team and help him pay for
his specialized sit-ski equipment and his competition
and travel expenses.
“This sponsorship enables me to get the resources
I need to reach my goal,” says Danniels, who placed
second in a Nor-Am Downhill competition last season
in Kimberley. “I will break eight or nine skis during the
training season, and at $1,000 per pair, my equipment
costs can get high.”
In return for their sponsorship, Axis is able to
bring Danniels’ passion, drive and energy into their
organization to share with their staff and clients. On
the day that Danniels dropped in to the Axis offices
for the photography session for this story, the staff
gathered round to have an impromptu session and
get an update.
“We are planning to be on the mountain with Sam
this winter. Meeting Sam gives our staff the chance to
learn about his goals and challenges, and to embrace
the idea of supporting a Paralympics hopeful,” said Tony
Davis, president of Axis Insurance.
Davis and his wife Noreen are avid skiers who frequently visit Whistler. When he saw the ski equipment used
www.ibabc.org
by amputee skiers and sit-skiers, Davis was struck by the
opportunities available to skiers with a disability through
technology, creativity and their own inspiration.
That inspiration is something that the Axis managers will tap into by inviting Danniels to join clients at
meetings and staff events when schedules permit.
Danniels brings more than his competitive spirit to
Axis Insurance. He is passionate about showing how
people with disabilities can have a positive impact on society and can achieve great things, whether or not they
are athletes. He is an ambassador for the Rick Hansen
Foundation, a volunteer with the Whistler Adaptive
Sports Program, and in his spare time he teaches other
paraplegics to sit-ski.
How to grow a champion
Recognizing a need to support up-and-coming
athletes in B.C., Growing Champions (www.growingchampions.ca) was developed by 2010 Legacies Now
in partnership with the Province of B.C., Sport BC,
PacificSport and BC Athlete Voice.
Through the program, businesses can choose a
high-performance athlete based on the business’s own
criteria, such as supporting athletes from communities
where they operate or those involved in certain sports.
Sponsoring businesses commit to provide a three-year,
$5,000 annual sponsorship.
Three out of every four dollars contributed goes directly to the athlete for his or her training, equipment
and competition costs; the remaining dollar goes to
supporting future athlete development programs and

Purple blankets
warm consumers
during winter sports
I
By Krista Martin
t’s a quintessential Canadian pastime to
hang out in rinks watching kids play hockey
or practise figure skating. Or to make the
best of winter conditions by having fun skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling.
So what could be better to help consumers
connect brokers to the now-familiar-to-everyone
“purple blanket” campaigns than to include winter sports coverage in the national and provincial
Broker Identity Programs (BIP).
Indeed, the advertising tieins have been there for many
years. Ads developed by the
Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) and
IBABC routinely appear in
programming like Hockey
Night in Canada and national
figure-skating championships.
For the past few years IBAC and
IBABC have been expanding the
exposure of the purple blanket
Two figure skaters perform in and the broker message in winter
front of the IBAC rink board at sports. Two such national initiathe Canadian Figure Skating tives are IBAC’s sponsorships of
Championships in January 2008. Skate Canada and the Canadian
Ski Patrol System. And both initiatives provide leveraging opportunities for IBABC
full-member brokers in their communities.
The “Bipper” will again be visible on rink boards

championships taking place
in Saskatoon Jan. 14 to 18
and in Fredericton April 1 to 5
(www.skatecanada.ca).
Brokers can tie in with this by
connecting with local Skate Canada clubs and participating in local
events. There are 1,388 Skate Canada
Clubs in Canada, 120 in B.C.; contact
the IBABC office for information on
the club nearest you.
In 2007 IBAC provided 4,000
blankets to first-aid stations at 214 ski
resorts across Canada. These resorts –
25 of which are in B.C. – are serviced by
volunteer members of the Canadian Ski
Patrol System who provide search-andrescue services on a volunteer basis.
The blankets were so well received that
this year IBAC made a five-year commitment to provide another 2,000 blankets
each year to replace lost or damaged
blankets at these hills.
Again, brokers can connect with the volunteers
at local ski hills to participate in promotions and
activities.
While a lot has to do with networking and becoming a vital part of the community, it ties into
the national pride associated with winter sports
in B.C. and Canada, and the upcoming Winter
Olympics in 2010.
Brokers who get involved in their communities,
however they do so, are putting a face to insurance
that many customers are unable to see outside the
broker’s office. Not only are customers, both new
and old, getting to know the person behind their
insurance, they are joined with them in a colloquial
www.ibabc.org
environment, such as the skating rink or ski resort,
on a level that both can relate to and enjoy.
“As insurance brokers we are firmly entrenched
in communities straight across this country,” says
Andrew Walker, vice-president of IBAC and a broker
with Cosman & Associates in Digby, Nova Scotia.
“The grassroots nature of the sport dovetails
nicely with the community involvement of the typical broker. Large corporations can spend millions to
be lead sponsors; we have the unique opportunity
to align ourselves with the under-represented core
of the sport: volunteers,” he says.
“Brokers can get involved as little or as much as
they want to,” says Janine Cavin, manager of marketing and advertising at IBAC, “from organizing
a fundraiser for the local club, to recognizing the
volunteer of the month or offering hot chocolate at
the end of a practice session.”
Here’s a winter-sport promotion that worked
well: In 2001 brokers in the Fraser Valley volunteered at Hemlock Valley ski resort to raise awareness of the risks of falling asleep at the wheel on the
drive home after a day of fresh air and exercise. They
put up a banner, engaged skiers in conversation,
and handed out information and coffee vouchers
donated by a local gas station.
Brokers who want to ‘fly the flag’ at winter events
can contact the IBABC office and obtain a free BIP
toque and neckwarmer, while supplies last. H H H

Among the stakeholders at a meeting
held Nov. 25 to explore ways of achieving
stability in insurance valuations in B.C.
were Tomi-Lyn Dean, regional sales,
Compu-Quote; Biff Moriarty, VP, market
development, e2Value; IBABC Chairman
Ted Lewis, and James Nickelo, senior
VP, sales and business development,
Compu-Quote. Insurers represented at the
meeting included Aviva, Axa Pacific, CNS,
Family, Gore Mutual, Sovereign General,
Economical, ING, Wawanesa and RSA.

craftsman is only as good as his tools. So
when a new tool was introduced to B.C.’s
P&C insurance industry by a major broker management system last month, it
caused a stir, because it added an unknown and unproven variable to the
already troublesome insurance-to-value arena.
In September Compu-Quote made available on its
broker management system an alternate desktop valuation tool called ezITV. A few B.C. brokers tried it and
generally determined that it did not meet their expectations; in some cases values were below the minimums
set by insurers.
On Nov. 3 Compu-Quote announced it had signed
an agreement with e2Value Inc., the Canadian distributor of ezITV, making it the default valuation calculator
in its broker management system as of Jan. 1, 2009,
and replacing the MSB product that had been available through Compu-Quote since the early ’90s. This
meant that decisions had to be made by insurers and
brokers alike – and many brokers were likely looking at
increased expenditures of time, effort and money.
IBABC issued a memo Nov. 8 asking insurers in
the B.C. habitational market to indicate whether they
would be accepting valuations done using the ezITV

calculator. A couple of insurers said yes – a
decision likely based on the fact that they
were already accepting this product in the
Ontario market. Some said no; some said
maybe, with conditions. Brokers meanwhile had questions around costs, transfer
of data and training. Many expressed
frustration that boardroom decisions appeared to have been made without much
consideration of their effects on the B.C.
market.
The relationship between MSB and
Compu-Quote broke down during negotiations for renewal of the contract
between them. MSB had indicated its
corporate direction of phasing out its
desktop version in favour of its webbased “Express” version. Compu-Quote
argued that its customer surveys showed
a strong preference for the desktop option, and that brokers would not welcome
the switch to a transaction-based pricing
structure that would be more expensive.
In Compu-Quote’s view it had no choice
but to find an alternate supplier. According to MSB, it agreed to continue to offer
the desktop version, but it was too late,
Compu-Quote had already thrown in
with e2Value.
ezITV is the brand name of a whitelabel RS Means product distributed by
e2Value Inc. RS Means is a major provider
of construction cost data in some parts of
the U.S. and since 2003 in Ontario.
According to Biff Moriarty, VP, market
development, e2Value, the data driving
the values in ezITV come from the usual
sources – contractors, StatsCan, appraisers
and so on – and the software provides for
regional differences to the first three digits
of postal codes. Actual reconstruction
costs of 80 loss cases have been factored
in over the past two years, but he admits
that none of them were B.C. losses. B.C.
insurers have agreed to provide e2Value
with data from recent total losses. CompuQuote has committed to make valuation
adjustments to better align ezITV’s results
with B.C. market realities. On the basis
that these adjustments are done, insurers have indicated they will accept ezITV
valuations.
Some brokers have said that it’s unfair
to be charged a fee to attend a seminar to
use a product they didn’t choose. CompuQuote said it will offer a weekly online
seminar and an online tutorial available
free of charge.
In the October issue of BC Broker we
reported that MSB and PowerSoft have
made short-form options available to
brokers, although not all insurers have
indicated their acceptance of short-form
valuations. e2Value will also work toward

increasing sport participation in B.C. Businesses can certainly
sponsor a local athlete directly and have 100% of the sponsorship
go to that athlete. For example, Murrick and Somerset Insurance
(the Nakamun Group) is sponsoring one of Canada’s top snowboarders, Michael Lambert. However, the Growing Champions
program provides a structure that can be helpful to a business.
Although the program developed out of a 2010 Winter Games
initiative, the athletes seeking sponsorship are not just involved
in winter sports. There are hundreds of Growing Champions
athletes from a variety of sports – from curling to speed skating to wheelchair basketball – who are looking to connect with
businesses throughout B.C.
Through Growing Champions, sponsors are able to engage
the communities in which they operate in an innovative way
by supporting the teamwork, determination and leadership of
B.C.’s athletes and by fostering the transfer of those skills from
sport into the community.
Axis Insurance Managers has an active sponsorship program.
Tony Davis heard about Growing Champions through his wife
and decided that it met the brokerage’s sponsorship criteria.
“With the Growing Champions program you can see the
result with the athletes immediately,” Davis says. “Your sponsorship funds local athletes who are committed to their sport
and who apply the funds directly towards getting the resources
they need for training and competition.” Local champions

offering a short-form valuation option.
Compu-Quote brokers can choose to use ezITV or
can opt not to. If they’re interested in continuing to
have access to MSB’s RCT products – desktop or Express
version – they should contact MSB directly. MSB’s RCT
is also available through Custom Software Solutions,
another broker management system. Brokers who use
PowerHouse are probably relieved not to be affected
by these changes.
The transferability of historical data has been a concern for brokers. Here’s the bad news (as of BC Broker’s
press time): Data that was entered into the RCT EvaluRater in Compu-Quote will be visible in
a viewer, but will not auto-populate into
ezITV fields when doing new valuations
on renewal. Even though those records
were entered into an RCT application in
the Compu-Quote system, they will not
be transferable to MSB’s products either.
Brokers may want to clarify with their
current and future valuation software
providers what format their data will be
available to them in upon termination of
their relationship.
So what’s next in our on-going search for ITV utopia? You can probably expect more options. The days
of a common calculator are gone; single-entry, multichannel interface may also become a thing of the past.
Don’t be surprised if more insurers start offering their
own ITV tools to their brokers. Brokers (in B.C. anyway)
will continue to be vocal in saying ITV is not just their
problem; the fix has to come from the whole industry.
The good news is that there are signs of cooperation
in seeking solutions. Perhaps within a few years full
insurance to value can be achieved – the future of
guaranteed replacement cost secure and published
premiums reduced.
We have the technology. We have the will. Can we
agree on what the right tools should be? So what’s
next in our
on-going
search for
ITV utopia?
What makes B.C. different?
It’s not just the physical barrier of the
Rocky Mountains that sets us apart:
A variety of insurers, from smaller
regional ones for whom B.C. is a significant part of their overall business,
to international ones that centralize
decision-making in their Toronto head
offices. These insurers bring a diversity
in underwriting and business philosophies and approaches.
The results of the catastrophic loss in
2003 in which about 240 homes in the
Kelowna and Thompson/Okanagan
area were totally lost to fire. Most
insurers operating in B.C. had reconstruction data that showed the homes
were undervalued by an average of
$100,000 per home, or about 30%.
 A superheated economy and housing
market for the past few years that has
driven up construction and reconstruction costs.
A public auto system that for some
insurers reduces the overall volume
of personal lines business, and their
ability to cushion the effects of pricing,
market cycles or large losses.
In other aspects of our lives (not just
insurance), we in B.C. are sometimes
underestimated by Ontario-based
decision-makers, so we tend to come
up with our own made-in-B.C. solutions. www.ibabc.org
