CBMU 100th Anniversary Archive
This year, The Canadian Board of Marine Underwriters is celebrating its 100th anniversary. What an exciting time for our association!
From its humble beginning in 1917 to what it has become today, the CBMU has continuously been the leading voice of the Marine insurance industry in Canada.
The evolution of shipping over the past 100 years has been staggering. From ship’s primary energy source going from coal to oil, from steam engines to Diesel ones, from the introduction of new navigable routes to the completion of the St-Lawrence Seaway, and not to mention containerization, the innovation that revolutionized and expanded the pathways of global trade – all of these historical events (and many more) have shaped the Marine insurance industry to what is has become today.
The CBMU has brilliantly navigated through 100 years of history. As such, we want to honour the past, take a moment to celebrate all of our accomplishments as an industry and look at the road ahead with great excitement.
