Engineering Insurance Conference

The 44th Annual Engineering Insurance Conference will be held on October 5th, 2017. The presentations from the 2016 conference are posted below.


History of the Conference


The first Engineering Insurance Conference ("EIC") was held in Toronto in 1973. The idea for the conference originated with Eric Monks, President of The Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company of Canada and Mervyn Venn, Director, Engineering and Technical Services, Royal Insurance Company, with input from Les Naylor of BI&I and Norman Scothorne of Royal Insurance. It was felt that a forum was required for the companies writing Boiler and Machinery business to share their expertise, knowledge and experience in engineering issues. The first EIC was chaired by Eric Monks and was attended by approximately forty attendees. In 2008, the EIC celebrated its 35th anniversary with ninety-two attendees from across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
