The Best Insurance Companies in Canada

Compare insurance quotes from the best insurance companies in Canada.

What is an insurance company?

An insurance company is an underwriter, meaning they provide financial benefits due to of a sudden and unexpect event. You pay them a monthly or annual fee, and they promise to repay you for any losses you sustain with your car, in your home, and including life.

Insurance has been around for hundreds of years and include international giants like Sunlife, Intact, Economical, and Aviva. You may not have heard of these companies, but you may know them by their direct agencies. You can buy insurance from a broker or directly. An insurance broker (e.g. RH insurance) looks at multiple companies (such as the ones listed), whereas an agent will represent one company such as Belair Direct (Intact) or Sonnet (Economical). There are also group insurers who you may only have access to if you're a member of a union or school alumni such as Meloche Monnex (TD) or  Johnson (RSA). You may also run into specialized insurance companies like Perth, who deal almost exclusively with high-risk insurance, or purely online insurance companies like Onlia.  Below are some of those insurance providers in Canada. You can also compare each by entering our quoter to see which one would give you the best price.
