About Travelers Canada Insurance

The umbrella on the logo of Travelers Canada is important because the company acts as a corporation for numerous insurers across the country. It started as Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company way back in 1887, making the company among the most experienced in Canada.

Dominion was purchased by US-based insurance giant Travelers and still exists today. Travelers Canada also comprises St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company and Travelers Insurance Company of Canada.

The company has nearly 1,700 employees across Canada and offers insurance solutions through auto, home, commercial and other lines. The wider Travelers Insurance group is among the leading insurance brands in the world, with 30,000 employees in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Brazil. The company operates in 80 countries.

In Canada, Travelers is noted for its attention to detail, diverse coverage, and strong customer care. In 2013, Travelers Canada acquired The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company, acquiring Chieftain Insurance in the process.
