InsureBC (formerly known as The Intercity Group) traces its roots back to 1988. Since our launch that year, we have developed into BC’s largest independently owned group of general insurance brokerages whose oldest members have been in insurance since the 1920’s.
With more than 100 locations across BC, we provide a comprehensive range of financial and insurance products and services to more than 600,000 customers annually. Our offices pride themselves at being experts in all areas of insurance, including life insurance, mortgage insurance, health insurance, as well as property and casualty insurance.
Through all of our locations and divisions, we employ approximately 975 employees in a variety of disciplines, including Insurance, Sales, Underwriting, Finance, Information Technology, Human Resources, Accounting and Administration around the globe.
Insurance companies we represent
Today, our BC operations are comprised of 90 independent insurance agencies located across the Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast and Interior of British Columbia. In 2012, we established InsureAlberta; our first inter-provincial office located in Edmonton. Since its inception, we have seen tremendous growth in BC and Alberta and are actively looking for new partnership and acquisition opportunities. In 2014, we expanded our Canadian operations to Ontario, where we established Bridges International Insurance Services (Ontario), situated downtown Toronto and able to service Canada’s largest Province.
In 2012, the InsureBC Group became an international company by expanding into the United States, with its acquisition of Vista International Insurance Brokers. Based in Petaluma, CA and licensed in more than 30 States, Vista offers expertise in risk management strategies for businesses and individuals. For more information, visit them online.
In 2014, we further expanded our international operations by acquiring two offices in The Netherlands. In the years since, InsureNL was officially established as a subsidiary of Insure International and now counts 9 insurance agencies throughout the Netherlands, employing nearly 100 insurance professionals.
In 2017, realizing how consumer demand is changing the way insurance products are purchased, we founded one of BC’s first online, digital insurance agencies; Insure-it-yourself Insurance Services. Backed by licensed insurance professionals, our digital insurance agency allows customers to purchase a wide array of insurance products completely online. We currently offer 8 different online products offered by 3 of Canada’s largest and most reputable insurance companies.
What makes InsureBC Unique?
In addition to being an international company, we are strongly committed to supporting the local communities in which we operate and give back wherever we can. Through our support of local charities, local businesses and community sponsored events; we get involved in areas that matter most to our employees and our clients. Our group is also continuously expanding and improving our resources to provide the widest range of products available for our clients.
With 90 offices across BC, one of our locations is always close by. That means that if you wish to move your insurance policy to one of our offices closer to where you reside or work, we can do so for you free of charge.
