The McGannon Foundation provides a Student Involvement Program for students that are enrolled in post-secondary study programs in Risk Management, Insurance or related programs. The Foundation is offering a unique opportunity for these students to attend the annual RIMS Canada Conference. At the conference, students will learn about risk management and insurance at the educational sessions and network with professionals in all segments of our industry.
