Champions for Every Client
At The Standard Insurance, we pride ourselves for our long-standing commitment to act as an advocate for every single one of our clients. Our experienced insurance brokers put their connections and knowledge to work everyday, to find insurance solutions that provide the best coverage and value for individual needs.
Empowered by the communities that we live and work in, we have grown to become Northwestern Ontario’s largest, longest-standing insurance brokerage firm.
In 2012, we entered a partnership with Oldfield Kirby Esau (OKE) in Manitoba and later collaborated with them to merge our operations. The decision to unite OKE and The Standard under one name built us into a smarter, stronger, well-resourced Insurance company with a proven ability to compete against the world’s best.
Today, we have nine offices that provide the full spectrum of insurance products to residents and businesses in Kenora, Dryden, Red Lake, Sioux Lookout, Flin Flon, Creighton, Thunder Bay, Fort Frances and Winnipeg.
Why The Standard Insurance?
Rooted In Our Community
Since our humble beginnings in 1897, we have operated as an integral part of our communities, investing in the places we live and work, and supporting our staff in their community involvement.
A key pillar of our success comes from being deeply ingrained in the concerns and needs of the communities in which we live and work. Participating in our communities makes us proud of who we are and what we do. It also allows us to better understand our clients’ needs, more than firms who aren’t from around here.
We truly are a part of the fabric and foundation of central Canada.
Why Choose an Insurance Broker?
Insurance brokers negotiate with insurance carriers on your behalf to secure the most comprehensive coverage for your needs, at the best possible value.
As brokers, we are not tied to any one specific insurance provider. We work with some of Canada’s top insurance carriers, so we can connect you with coverage, policies and payment plans you may not otherwise be able to access.
We’ll take the time to understand your unique circumstances and needs, negotiate on your behalf to secure the best possible plan, then present your options in a way you understand so you can make an informed decision. We want you to be informed about the insurance that is available to you, and to help you choose a plan that will give you the most complete coverage with the best possible value.
