Insurance Information for Consumers

Looking for an Alberta Insurance Broker?



Why Choose an Insurance Broker?

Insurance brokers are licensed professionals who work for you, not for the insurance company. Our role is to learn all about you, your lifestyle, and your belongings in order to customize the best insurance program to meet your needs. You work hard for everything you own, so why not make sure you have the right protection?


When is it time to get an insurance broker?

Your insurance needs are more complex than check boxes on a website. Watch this video to find out why....



What we do for you:

  • Ask you about your lifestyle, your home, your belongings, your family
  • Shop from several insurance companies to match your needs with the right protection
  • Recommend the best insurance solution at the right price
  • Explain how to read your policy, how to understand what is covered/not covered, and answer your questions
  • Help you understand what to expect when you have a claim and what your policy requires you to do
  • Be on your side if things go wrong and explain how to sort things out
  • Review your coverage at least every year to ensure you are still properly protected as your life and belongings change.
