WATERLOO, ON, April 11, 2018Economical has been working with its valued broker partners for more than 146 years. This commitment to the broker channel continues to evolve and innovate, including the recently announced broker offering Vyne™, which will streamline the broker experience. Now, Economical is continuing its Title Sponsorship of MSA Quarterly Outlook Reports to provide key industry information and insights to brokers across Canada.

“We are delighted that Economical has reaffirmed its support for this initiative coast-to-coast providing members of IBAO, IBAA, IBAM, IBANB, RCCAQ, IBABC, IBAS, IBANS, IBAN and IBAPEI with MSA’s quarterly outlook reports and to be ‘in’ on the latest analysis, trends and developments affecting the markets in which they operate.” said Joel Baker, CEO of MSA Research Inc.
