A Canadian Heritage
The Past: A history of excellence
The history of The Dominion parallels that of Canada itself. The first wholly Canadian casualty insurance organization, the company was founded in 1887 when former Canadian Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald was hopeful that a transcontinental economy based on an east-west axis would one day stretch across the country. Believing that the new insurance company would serve Canada’s best interests, he agreed to become the company’s first President. Sir John A. was right about the development of a transcontinental economy in Canada. It began to flourish, and along with it, The Dominion began stretching across the country to satisfy market demand.
Today: Over 100 years old and still growing
With an established record of financial stability and superior service, The Dominion has become one of Canada’s largest property and casualty insurance companies, and remain 100% Canadian-owned. The company operates in seven provinces and the territories, providing personal and commercial insurance products to meet the needs of individuals and businesses. The Dominion offers insurance products exclusively through a network of independent brokers. They remain committed to developing innovative market-leading insurance products and services that keep The Dominion at the forefront of the industry.

From the President down, The Dominion tends to “push the marketplace” and influence the industry with new products and innovative services aimed at satisfying changing policyholder needs and strengthening broker relationships.
