About Us

Why deal with us?

  • We are independent; we are not owned by a retail broker or Insurance company. When you place business with us, you are not putting money in your competitor’s pocket.
  • The CEO and the Chief Underwriting Officer have almost sixty years of experience in the business. They have worked for brokers, reinsurers and insurance companies in both Western and Eastern Canada. They have started MGAs and Insurance companies in Canada. They have a deep understanding of your needs.
  • We are focused; we target a limited number of niche areas. Better to know a lot about a few things than not much about a lot of things.
  • We have an experienced, Canadian based Claims department.
  • Unlike most MGAs, we pay commissions for growth.
  • We provide a variety of products to these industries and can build a tailored package of insurance protection to meet their needs.
  • We will respond to your needs promptly and consistently. We will only surprise you with our superior service, not by reacting differently each time you contact us.

We look forward to serving you.
