From our roots in 17th century England to present day Canada, Aviva has changed insurance. Through a process best described as “evolutionary,” Aviva has emerged from the creation of new companies and a series of mergers. But through it all, Aviva has always provided customers with peace of mind, with a vision of being the most trusted and valued home, auto and business insurer. Aviva’s roots in Canada can be traced back to the early 19th century, when a number of UK-based insurance companies operated branch offices all across Canada. These companies have since merged their strengths to become Aviva Canada. In 1887, the first Canadian based Aviva heritage company, Canada Accident Assurance Company was incorporated. Then in 1906, The General Accident Assurance Company of Canada – another Aviva heritage company – was incorporated in Toronto. During the 20th century, numerous Aviva Canada predecessors emerged, changed their names, combined their strengths and were purchased until finally – on May 5, 2003 – CGU Insurance Company of Canada changed its name to Aviva Insurance Company of Canada.
