About us

Zurich Insurance Group Ltd is an insurance-based financial services provider. Founded in 1872 - and in Canada since 1923 - Zurich has a global network of subsidiaries and offices in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and other markets. Zurich's 60,000 employees serve customers in more than 170 countries.

In Canada, we are focused on developing unique solutions for:

  • large Canadian corporations;
  • Canadian-based multinationals;
  • Canadian businesses in manufacturing, transportation and construction; and 
  • groups and associations in niche markets.

Our knowledge of U.S. and international insurance and our close working relationship with Zurich colleagues around the world enable us to provide borderless insurance solutions to meet our customers’ needs, regardless of their location.

In Canada, we conduct business exclusively through a network of independent insurance brokers.

Financial Stability

When customers and brokers select an insurer, they need to know the company will be around and in a position to pay claims this year, next year and in the years to come.

They also need to consider a company’s access to capital and its ability to offer sufficient capacity — not only today, but also tomorrow.

Zurich has a strong balance sheet and a well-balanced portfolio of business — geographically and by line of business. Zurich consistently maintains strong financial ratings.

With more than 130 years of history and a bright future, customers can feel secure selecting Zurich as their insurance provider.
