Salute 2020 - Cancelled


We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel Salute 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have budgeted funds for sponsoring or attending the event, we ask that you consider redirecting those funds toward the fight against COVID-19.

SaluteBC has made a $3,000 contribution to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank COVID Response Fund. This donation has been made possible by the Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver who very generously refunded our deposit for this year’s event.

2019 Winners


Salute was formed in 1992 to recognize and honour the Insurance Person of the Year, someone who has made a significant contribution to furthering the image of the general insurance industry in this province.

In 2007 we introduced the Rising Star Award, honouring a person from the next generation, whose professional contributions and dedication to excellence have already made them a leader and a role model in our industry.

The Insurance Person of the Year and Rising Star awards are presented at a gala evening which celebrates the dedication, commitment, and integrity of all the people in our industry.
