Westland Insurance has partnered with Prime Benefits Group, a provider of employee benefits and retirement solutions based in Ottawa, Ontario.

A news release from the brokerage characterized the move as a way to continue strengthening Westland’s foothold in the Canadian insurance market and amplifying its capabilities in the group benefits sector.

“I’m thrilled to announce this new partnership with Prime Benefits Group,” said Jamie Lyons, president and CEO of Westland. “This exciting moment marks another milestone in Westland’s growth strategy, allowing us to diversify our offerings further and strengthen our position as a leader in the insurance industry.”

Prime Benefits Group has over 30 years of experience in the group benefits space, helping Canadian companies and their employees secure comprehensive coverage. It serves clients across Ottawa, Brockville, Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Guelph, London, Sarnia, Sudbury, North Bay, Timmins, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver Island, Moncton, and throughout Quebec.

“Prime Benefits brings a wealth of specialized knowledge in the group benefits market, and we’re proud to be partnering with them,” Lyons said further.

News of Westland’s latest partnership comes after it unveiled a cyber offering in collaboration with BOXX Insurance. The product was designed for individuals and families, with features such as credit monitoring, $1 million in identity recovery expenses, and lost wallet assistance.

It has also been growing its presence in Ontario, most recently through the acquisition of Burlington-based David H. Coons Insurance Brokers.
