Waypoint Insurance was founded over 150 years ago on Vancouver Island by entrepreneurial insurance brokers dedicated to crafting top-tier insurance products unique to life in Western Canada. Waypoint has grown to become one of the largest insurance brokerages in British Columbia.
Waypoint Insurance has 20 locations across Vancouver Island and the lower mainland. Today, our 275 staff arrange over 150,000 Commercial, Personal and Auto Insurance policies annually for clients across Western Canada. We are prepared for the future, and we are committed to providing you with expert advice and a superior range of product offerings.
While we continue grow, community remains at the heart of our organization. In the last ten years, Waypoint Insurance has donated more than a half-a-million dollars to over 100 community initiatives.
Waypoint is proud to offer the strength and market capacity of a large brokerage with the service and attention of a boutique firm.
In 2019, Waypoint became a proud partner of the Navacord group, a leading insurance and risk management brokerage firm dedicated to providing expert solutions to businesses across Canada.
At Navacord, entrepreneurship is in our DNA. Driven to grow their businesses and leverage scale without losing their identities to larger firms, industry leaders Jones DesLauriers Insurance Management Inc. and Lloyd Sadd Insurance Brokers, a third-generation family business, joined forces in 2014. The two established brands, with a proven track record for successful entrepreneurial growth and profitability, created Navacord to offer a unique ownership model and value proposition that benefits both clients and partners by combining a boutique experience with the backing and stability of a national firm.
This entrepreneurial spirit challenges the active M&A environment that has been changing the insurance landscape. Many small brokers are negatively impacted by acquisitions from large firms that strip them of their identity and local culture. Navacord preserves the independence of its partners, and builds on the deeply rooted, long-standing business relationships of its top experts and trusted advisors who are making a difference in the communities they serve.
Now one of the largest Canadian commercial insurance brokerages, with 90+ shareholders and growing, Navacord continues to aggressively pursue a forward-thinking approach to further enhance its sector expertise and help ensure clients’ success.
