Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) was founded in 1945 as a provincial crown corporation. SGI Canada sells property and casualty insurance for homes, cars, farms, and businesses in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario. SGI employs about 2,000 people and works with nearly 300 brokers across Canada.
Tenant (Renter's) insurance
You can purchase insurance through one of SGI Canada’s approved insurance brokerages – an example of this would be Surex Direct. Brokerages are certified resellers of insurance products for various insurers across Canada – each brokerage will establish agreements with individual insurance companies in order to be able to offer their complement of products.
The benefit of purchasing from an insurance broker is that they have a better understanding of what’s in the market and can provide you with a less biased take on what’s available to you. The primary drawback from purchasing insurance from a broker versus going direct, as some insurers may offer, is that it may cost you a bit more than if you had chosen to purchase directly from an insurer. As always, we recommend you take the time to shop and compare insurance providers to make sure you are getting the best policy for the right price to meet your needs.
