A message from our CEO regarding COVID-19

To our valued clients,

Thank you for the trust you have placed in us as your insurance and risk management partner. For all of us, these are unique and challenging times. There are daily, often hourly, new developments that impact how we all conduct our businesses, and impacts to the health and wellness of our employees. I want you to know that we are right here with you. We remain committed to our clients, recognizing that people and relationships are our business.

In this ever-changing landscape, I want to assure you that we are and will continue to be open for business. Our services remain at full capacity and we’re closely monitoring the fluidity of the situation to ensure we adapt to meet your business needs. In order to meet the needs of both our employees and clients, we have executed the following to ensure business continuity:

  • We have implemented a broad work-from-home strategy.
  • All office phone lines have been forwarded to cell phones, or the messages you leave will be automatically forwarded to the recipient’s e-mail.
  • Should you need the phone number or e-mail of one of our team members, please find it here.
  • We continue to be in constant contact with insurers and underwriters so that we can provide the best advice and information to clients.
  • We’ll be opting for phone and video meetings where appropriate to protect the health of our employees.
  • We recommend for both commercial and personal clients exploring the opportunities to finance the payment of their premium, please contact your representative for options and details.
  • We will be providing digital copies of documents as much as possible and sending them via e-mail.
  • All employees who have recently been outside of Canada or have shown symptoms of COVID-19 are required to self-isolate for at least the recommended 14-day period.
