In 2016 legislation was passed in Ontario to introduce a new designation for designers in the construction industry commonly known as BCIN which stands for Building Code Identification Number and provincial wide standards and examinations were established. In addition some Ontario colleges like George Brown College began offering courses to help prepare for building code examinations. Since then the awareness around the important differences between BCIN firms and professionals and architects and architectural firms has been growing as they are not the same. Given these differences when securing insurance BCIN designers and BCIN firms should select a business insurance brokerage with the experience and expertise to appreciate the differences and secured specialized products. The commercial insurance brokerage ALIGNED Insurance works with many BCIN designers and is one of the leading brokerages across Canada for professional liability insurance for BCIN designers and other design professionals.
