Our extensive sector knowledge across Canada’s commercial and industrial sectors, coupled with our direct contact with specialist brokers, enables us to develop highly customised insurance products that mirror the risk dynamics of each individual organisation.

That insight also ensures that policies are designed with the longer-term objectives of the company in mind. That means coverage designed to flex with the changing requirements of the organisation itself or the demands of the markets in which it operates.

As a multi-line insurer, Volante Canada can also extend its coverage options into complementary lines of business. Our specialist teams can develop umbrella programs that include casualty and auto fleet products.
