About Economical Insurance

Economical Insurance was founded in Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario, in 1871, by a group of citizens wanting to help their neighbours during times of disaster. At the time, it was called the Economical Mutual Fire Insurance Company.

By purchasing companies such as Langdon Insurance, Western General and Perth Mutual, Economical Insurance is able to offer home, car, group, business and agricultural insurance.

It serves more than one million Canadians through national independent brokers, and with a digital direct brand called the Sonnet Insurance Company.

Economical Insurance prides itself on outstanding customer service. It has a 92 percent customer satisfaction score in post-claim surveys.
