Commercial Insurance Ottawa

We protect your business; you keep doing what you do best

Businesses opt for insurance coverage to ensure the continued financial protection of their investments, property, customers, and future operations. In the event of a mishap, disaster, or negative incident such as a robbery, they would otherwise be left to fend for themselves financially, likely facing difficult decisions and potentially even foreclosure.

As brokers, we represent virtually all insurance suppliers.

What is a registered insurance broker?

In Ontario, insurance brokers are governed by the Registered Insurance Brokers Act of Ontario.

A registered insurance broker is an independent insurance professional. Brokers sell general insurance including coverage for home, business, automobile, farm, boat, ATV, life, etc.

Brokers represent your best interests when negotiating a contract with an insurance provider.

Unlike an agent, an insurance broker does not work directly for an insurance company or financial institution. Brokers act as an ntermediary between an insurance provider and the client.

Insurance brokers can offer several choices from a variety of insurance providers.

They are well versed on various insurance products available. They are not affiliated with insurance companies or financial institutions and can offer independent, non-biased advice.

Frequently asked questions

What insurance companies do you work with?

We work with a variety of leading insurance companies across Canada. This allows us to find a policy that works best for your companies’ unique needs.

Do I need coverage for my small business?

Yes, insurance is essential even if you work from home and don’t have any employees. No matter the size of your operation, you should have protection from all the risks that could jeopardize your business, such as fire, theft, cyber-attacks, and lawsuits. If you don’t have the appropriate insurance coverage in place, you could be responsible to pay for any damages out of pocket. Insurance will give you the financial protection and peace of mind that you need.

Do I need coverage for my startup?

Even if you don’t have a product or something of value to protect just yet, you should still have coverage for the activities that occur within your business. Contact one of our brokers today to learn more about the coverages that your startup will need to protect you from any risks that could threaten your launch and immediate operations.

What is Errors and Omissions Insurance?

This is a type of liability insurance that will cover you for any negligence, errors or omissions that you make when providing professional services. E&O insurance will cover any legal fees or damages should you make a faulty claim or fail to meet your responsibilities resulting in a financial loss for your customer or client.

What is Directors and Officers Insurance and who needs it?

Directors and Officers Insurance (DO) protects company managers from claims that could arise due to their actions. It also protects the business from any mistakes or wrongful acts that the managers or board of directors could make. Coverage is normally for current, future and past claims made against any directors and officers in the business. If you are a venture capitalist or agency, contact our team today to find out whether or not you need D&O insurance to protect your interests and how much is enough for your type and size of company.
