Insurance affects virtually everything we do in life and in business. It protects homes, jobs, cars, property and the continuity of lives.

There are more than 120,000 Canadians working in the property and casualty insurance sector. It’s an industry that reflects the face and the values of Canadian society and has a constant need for talented, creative, motivated people.
What is property and casualty insurance?
Property insurance protects all kinds of property – from a diamond ring to an oil-drilling platform to a shoe store – against the risk of loss. If anything happens to the property, such as a loss due to theft or fire, property insurance can provide the financial means to replace it. When you acquire anything of value, something you wish to protect against loss, you need property insurance.
Casualty insurance covers the legal responsibility you may have for unintentionally harming others. For example, if you back into another car and cause damage, your insurance will cover the cost of repairing the other person’s vehicle. If someone was injured, your insurance would cover the cost of rehabilitation and medical costs.
When you purchase insurance, the insurance company assumes the possible financial risks associated with you driving a car, owning a home or running a business. If something happens, the insurance company ensures that you are compensated for the loss or expenses incurred. Buying insurance is like buying peace of mind.
