How We Help

At Fortress Insurance we work exclusively with independent Canadian insurance brokers. We’re a domestic insurance provider that strives to build strong, trustworthy and long-lasting relationships with our broker community.

We have a flexible underwriting team with quick turnaround times so our brokers can service their clients effectively.

We are responsive, well capitalized and flexible to serve the specialized needs of our broker partners.

Broker Commissions

Fortress Insurance provides fixed commissions to Canadian brokers. Those commissions vary depending on the services they offer. Increased commissions are provided for underwriting, policy issuance, claims  management and reporting.

Broker Ownership

Fortress Insurance does not have any ownership in any of the independent brokers with which we partner.

  • “We at Harvard Western are pleased to voice our support for your plan to build an insurer to service the western Canadian market. We recently noticed a hardening in the insurance market here in Saskatchewan and we therefore would welcome additional insurance capacity into the province, particularly by an insurer with a focus on specialty lines and commercial property capacity.”

    Dave Pettigrew, President & CEO, Harvard Western Insurance
  • “As one of the largest independent brokerages in Canada, with over 500 staff in our group of companies, Rogers Insurance Ltd. and myself are well-positioned to evaluate the need for new capacity in the market and am pleased to [support Fortress Insurance and its] efforts to bring new insurance capacity to Alberta and Western Canada.”

    Bruce Rabik, Chief Operating Officer, Rogers Insurance Ltd.
  • “We believe that there is room in the western Canadian marketplace for a small, nimble, regionally focused insurer that can respond to special situations, develop innovative products and provide excess capacity in commercial insurance. With global insurers currently moving capital and capacity out of Canada, we agree with you that now is an opportune time to execute your plan.”

    Joe Sirianni, Chief Operating Officer, Western Financial Group
  • “I’m delighted to hear that Fortress is proceeding through the regulatory process with a plan to…expand its product line and territory to include the B.C. marketplace. My team and I are eager to…work together.”
