We know business insurance can sometimes be complicated.

Ecclesiastical Canada is a fully intermediated insurer which means we don’t sell our products directly to organizations.

Who We Are Trilateral

We instead use a trilateral approach working closely with a reputable independent broker network across Canada. This ensures you get combined expertise, service, advice and coverage for your unique circumstances.

A quality insurance broker can clarify information, communicate important factors, and work with us to customize your policy.

To Our Brokers – We want to be your most trusted partner in the specialty insurance space for Faith Communities, Educational Institutions, Retirement Living, Charity-Non Profit and Arts/Culture/Heritage.

Thank you to our brokers!

Many of our brokers joined our broker webinar series in April-May this year.

We appreciated their attendance and shared with them our working model, our appetite, the benefits of being one of our brokers and our key business segments:

Arts, Culture, Heritage

Charity, Non-profit

Educational Institutions

Faith Communities

Retirement Living

We always appreciate feedback from our brokers and so we asked them to complete a post-event survey.  For each survey completed, Ecclesiastical made a donation to charities across Canada.  More than $5,000 was donated to 15 charities on behalf of our brokers.  Giving back is core to what we do at Ecclesiastical, and we were happy to support these organizations this way.

If you have any questions about being a broker with Ecclesiastical, please contact us.
