We’re Federated Insurance.

We’ve been around for a long time. Federated Insurance can be traced all the way back to 1890, when a group of farm implement dealers in Minnesota formed an association to reduce their insurance costs. About 30 years later, in 1920, the company’s Canadian division was born, and our focus on serving Canadians with the highest level of customer service hasn’t wavered since. The company became 100% Canadian owned and operated by 1990 when it was purchased by Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd.

Knowing Your Business Matters

While everyone on the street may not know who we are, once they do, we’re hard to forget. Adam Growe, comedian and host of Cash Cab, discovered just that when he spoke to some of our loyal customers.

“Federated Insurance has been with us every step of the way. They’re there proactively. They understand the business. As years have changed, as the business has changed, they have been able to customize it so that it makes it mutually beneficial.”
