Congratulations to our 2019 winning broker partners! 


Hatton Insurance Agency won 2019 Broker of Year for British ColumbiaThe team selected Cowichan District Hospital Foundation as the recipient of their award. 

The current hospital facilities for the Cowichan Valley opened in 1967. In the decades since opening, the area population has grown significantly and demand for healthcare with it. In 2015, the Cowichan Valley Regional Hospital District (CVRHD) identified, purchased, and rezoned a site for the new hospital to properly accommodate current and future healthcare needs. Illustrating the community’s commitment to a new hospital, the Foundation allocated 100% of its 2015 annual appeal campaign funds to the new hospital fund in addition to contributing 20% of their annual funds each year.
