The Co-operators buys Quebec City brokerage

The move is a part of the insurer’s ongoing expansion in Quebec

The Co-operators has acquired Quebec City-based Assurance Auclair, a brokerage that handles personal and commercial insurance policies. The transaction gives the insurer access to the book of business of Rénald Auclair, the principal and sole broker within Assurance Auclair.

“We have seen steady growth in Quebec during the past seven years, and this is another step on our journey to expand our agency distribution system throughout the province,” says Rob Wesseling, president and CEO of The Co-operators, in a statement. “We look forward to helping our new clients get the insurance and investment products they need to achieve financial security, and ultimately, peace of mind.”

The Co-operators’ announcement notes that Assurance Auclair’s clients’ existing insurance coverage will remain in effect for the current term of their policies.
