Being named the top brokerage firm in Canada is a major achievement for Archway Insurance, says Amherst Mayor David Kogon.
“It shows a business can thrive in a community such as ours,” Kogon said, after learning the Amherst-headquartered firm had received the ranking from Insurance Business Canada, a national industry web magazine.
“On behalf of Amherst town council, I want to congratulate Archway Insurance on this achievement and wish them even greater success in the future.”
Archway Insurance has been named Canada’s top brokerage by Insurance Business Canada magazine.
The firm “is thrilled” to be recognized by the magazine, Archway Insurance president Gina McFetridge said on May 1, a day after the magazine issued its rankings.
“We have worked incredibly hard to become an industry leader in the Maritimes by providing choice and expert advice locally,” McFetridge said. “Receiving recognition at the national level is a tremendous honour and our growing team of professional brokers could not be more proud.”
An updated North Tyndal Wellfield Water Source Protection Strategy was adopted by Amherst town council at its April 30 council session.
The updated strategy was developed over the past 24 months.
The original strategy was put in place in the late 1980s. At the time it was a model for other jurisdictions, but the plan’s age caused the provincial Environment Department to ask for an updated version.
Noting that Gaels, through their language and culture, have played an important part in Nova Scotia`s rich history, Mayor David Kogon declared May to be Gaelic Nova Scotia Month in the Town of Amherst.
“It’s important that we recognize all of the diverse cultures that have contributed to the province and to this community,” Kogon said in making the declaration.
“Throughout its history Gaels have had a positive social and economic impact on the province. They have also helped to demonstrate how cultural diversity is the foundation upon which we build our communities.”
