Fuse Insurance Ltd. is proud to be a pioneer in the Canadian commercial insurance industry. We are one of the first providers in Canada, and the first based in Western Canada, to launch a fully online commercial insurance brokerage. This lets our clients quote, buy and manage their insurance program, all online. Our transparent, online process eliminates confusion around documents and coverage. It also allows for instant policy changes and document generation, including pink cards and certificates of insurance.
Like many traditional paper-based insurance brokerages, Fuse represents many leading insurers headquartered in Canada and internationally. This allows us to find the best combination of coverage and price for our clients, even for hard-to-place operations. Fuse Insurance maintains a better-than-industry-standard practice of only placing coverage with insurers awarded an A.M. Best “A” credit rating or higher.
We focus on offering a wide variety of commercial insurance products to small and medium sized businesses in Western Canada. These products include:
