We are proud to announce that Canadian Broker Network is a Shining Star Sponsor of the 2021 Starlight Insurance Gala (Campaign!).

Since it began in 1994, the Starlight Insurance Gala has raised over $4.7 million for Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada, providing support to do what no medicine can do: create priceless smiles and memories for seriously ill children and their families. CBN, alongside the insurance industry, is a proud supporter of this mission.

In the Gala’s 27-year history, they are now introducing a brand-new concept for the first time: a year-long campaign celebration in support of Starlight Canada. Quarterly through 2021, they will be holding new and fun initiatives for support and participation among the entire insurance industry.
