2017 CCAE National Conference Prospectus for Sponsors


TD Insurance Meloche Monnex

 CCAE's National Partner, TD Insurance Meloche Monnex, 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 Meloche Monnex joined together to create a remarkable internship program, the TD Insurance Meloche Monnex Fellowships in Advancement.

CCAE values highly the relationship with TD Insurance Meloche Monnex 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 Meloche Monnex 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.


MBNAMBNA is the leading affinity credit card issuer in Canada and has continually grown its credit card program for the past 18 years. Our success has been our partnership approach to the business, collaboratively working together with our partners to develop an integrated marketing plan supported by a strong value proposition and rewards program that will resonate with your alumni and future alumni.

Supporting and strengthening higher learning has been a fundamental component to our support of colleges and universities over the years. Our co-brand and affinity programs offered through MBNA, a division of TD, have provided funding to over 45+ prestigious colleges and universities to date.

MBNA has over 150 Canadian partners, representing the endorsement of our products from millions of members, alumni, associates, or customers.

With millions of cardholders being served every month, when it comes to the question of who best suits Canadian colleges’ and universities’ strategic long-range plans for its financial services, the Toronto Dominion Bank, through our MBNA credit card division, is the answer. Canadian colleges and universities won’t find a business partner more in tune with continued financial growth and rewards for its student and alumni credit card programs.
