WHAT’S AN INSURANCE BROKER?

Brokers are insurance experts uniquely positioned to represent the best interests of Ontario consumers. They don’t work for insurance companies — they shop for policies from multiple companies for the best product and price. Insurance brokers are consumers’ only source of independent, expert insurance advice.
