CCAE National Partner Profile:


CCAE's National Partner, TD Insurance, has worked closely with CCAE since the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education came into existence 24 years ago. For 19 of those years, starting in 1998 in response to the critical shortage of trained advancement professionals in Canada, CCAE and TD Insurance joined together to create a remarkable internship program, the TD Insurance Fellowships in Advancement.

CCAE values highly the relationship with TD Insurance and encourages all CCAE member schools and individual representatives to familiarize themselves with TD services, as this National Partner not only supports the association's mission, but also directly benefits CCAE members across the country.

A member of the TD Bank Group, TD Insurance is the largest group insurance provider in Canada. In addition to being the undisputed national leader in affinity marketing, TD Insurance has been providing exceptional service to its clients for over 65 years. Drawing on the expertise of a dedicated service-oriented team, TD Insurance is now the largest direct-response group home and automobile insurance provider in Canada and one of the top personal home and automobile insurance groups in the country.

  • 4,000 professionals at the service of 2.1 million customers.
  • A portfolio of over 2 million policies representing $3 billion in premiums.
  • A network of offices strategically located right across Canada.

Our business strategy is built around our unique affinity marketing approach and the strong relationships we develop with our affinity clients. Getting to know our corporate clients, and maintaining the relationships we establish with them, is vital to our success. Long-term relationships allow us to work cooperatively to maximize the benefits for group members through our quality products, competitive pricing and attentive, professional client service.

Our Affinity Market Team, wholly dedicated to our affinity clients, relies on the solid support from sales, customer service and claims professionals, along with specialists in underwriting, product development, marketing and other disciplines, all working together to give our clients outstanding value.

Anne-Marie Aguilar, University of Alberta, receives her 2017 - 18 TD Insurance Fellowship in Advancement Award from Max Stiles of TD Insurance.
