The Co-operators makes second Ontario broker acquisition of 2019

The Co-operators has today announced its second Ontario broker acquisition of 2019. The Canadian co-operative has welcomed Robinson & Associates Insurance Brokers in the Niagara region to its growing ranks. This deal follows shortly after the firm’s acquisition of Redford Insurance Brokers in the Greater Toronto Area.

Robinson & Associates Insurance Brokers in Niagara Falls and Ridgeway, ON, provides personal and commercial insurance policies. All existing coverage their clients have will remain in effect for the current term of their policies.

“This is our second Ontario broker acquisition of 2019, demonstrating our commitment to strengthen our agency distribution system in the region,” said Rob Wesseling, president and CEO of The Co-operators. “This continued growth allows us to better serve our clients, helping them achieve financial security, and ultimately, peace of mind.”

As part of The Co-Operators, clients of Robinson & Associates Insurance Brokers will gain access to The Co-Operators’ full suite of insurance products including home, auto, life, travel and commercial.

Following the acquisition of Redford Insurance Brokers in January, Wesseling commented: “This is another step forward in strengthening and growing our agency distribution system in Ontario, and across the country — allowing us to better serve Canadians and their families.”
