27th Annual General Meeting and Awards Gala Dinner

Members of the Surety Association of Canada (SAC) are invited to join us for our 27th Annual General Meeting and Awards Gala Dinner. The event will be held on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, one of Canada's premier convention centre hotels.

Over the past year the surety industry has been witness to a vast number of changes, most of which directly impact commercial and contract surety products and services. SAC has been at the forefront of these changes, helping to guide processes, participating in discussions with stakeholders and groups, and advocating on our members behalf. As your national trade advocacy association, we strive to drive the direction for the future of surety and are pleased to announce our 2018 event theme…

In support of this year’s event theme, and to bring her story of how change in uncertain times lead her to transcend her career to become a visionary for local and global causes, we are excited to announce this year’s keynote speaker…

The Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell rose to fame as Canada’s first female Prime Minister and one of the youngest Prime Minister’s worldwide. Since her tenure as leader, she has traveled internationally to represent Canada and strengthen democracy and women’s leadership around the world. From her rise as a young leader to an international advocate for democracy and a ‘leader of leaders’, Ms. Campbell brings a unique and matured perspective on current events, politics and international relations.
