Women Creating Legacy

Nominations Now Closed!

When Christie Mills opened her insurance brokerage in 1979, she needed exceptional courage, tenacity and resilience to succeed. With integrity, innovation and a customer-first focus, she blazed a trail for women in the insurance sector.

As a tribute to her accomplishments as she retires, Mills Insurance Brokers Ltd., Aviva Canada and the Ivey Academy are proud to offer the Women Creating Legacy in Insurance Scholarship Fund. Dedicated to accelerating the advancement and leadership of women in insurance, the Canada-wide search is on for women who exemplify Christie’s business values, are committed to innovation and put customers at the heart of every decision. Christie and her daughter Amy Mills will be on the judging panel to choose candidates who are blazing their own trails in today’s insurance sector. Program graduates will be asked to become ambassadors, help find new nominees and mentor future winners to ensure women leaders get the recognition and support they deserve.
