Many Canadians don’t understand the different options available for purchasing insurance in Canada, and why using a broker is a better choice. A broker is a licensed insurance professional who will make sure you have the right coverage because a broker works for you, not an insurance company.
In Canada, you can purchase insurance from a variety of sources:
a) directly from an insurance company
b) from an agent who represents only one insurer and can only offer that company’s products
c) on the Internet
d) through an insurance broker who can offer a choice of coverages from various insurance companies.
An insurance broker’s foremost duty is to his or her client. An insurance broker works for you.
An insurance broker is an invaluable ally for the consumer. Purchasing insurance can be complicated as insurance policies are legal documents and not every policy is the same. Purchasing insurance through an insurance broker gives you peace of mind.
