With C$2.5bn in premiums, Westland’s brokers are engaged in offering services across commercial, personal, employee benefits, farm, and speciality insurance.

Founded in 1980, the Canadian broker said it continues to invest in and grow its business in the country, both organically and through strategic acquisitions.

Last month, Westland Insurance acquired Montridge Advisory Group and BST Insurance to boost its consulting and P&C practices. The acquisition of BST Insurance Brokers marked Westland’s entry into Pickering.
