Who we are
Canadian Managing General Agents (CAMGA) is a trade Forum run by MGA’s for MGA’s in Canada.
Established in 2017, the 150th anniversary of Canada, CAMGA is intent on serving the interests of its members before the Federal, Provincial/Territory, and regulatory agencies and to co-operate with other MGA trade forums around the Globe.
CAMGA, although newly established, will look to represent as many of the current 100 plus MGA’s operating in Canada, and to be considered as the Leader and voice of the Wholesale and MGA Insurance Industry in Canada.
Membership of CAMGA will be selective and focused upon MGA’s who derive their revenue from purely Underwriting of business on behalf of their supporting Insurers, and whose primary function and focus is the provision of underwriting services and whose primary fiduciary duty is to its Insurer principal and that their income is solely derived from this activity.
