2014 ICPEI brokers' calendar

Share your milestone moments with us by entering our calendar contest.

The 2014 ICPEI brokers' calendar theme is Stepping Stones. Please send us your photos of those big or small moments that mark where you are on the way to where you will be; you finally hiked to the top of that mountain, maybe your daughter is learning to ride a bike, or you're savouring the moment you can finally retire to the cottage. From celebrations of family, to personal achievements in the great outdoors and precious memories, we're asking customers to show us their stepping stone snapshots because we've been with them every step of the way, providing the insurance protection they need.

We'll select 13 entries to feature in our calendar, which will hang in households and businesses all over Canada. We give $500 to each of the 13 winning entries.
