Did you know that there are 190,000 farms in Canada – and the average insured value of their operations grows each year? Unfortunately, many farm policies don’t have adequate coverages, considering both their size, complexity and the significance of the exposures they face. Protect yourself and your clients from unexpected and underinsured losses.

Tailored products have been developed to provide the unique and specialized coverages required for these exceptional enterprises. You will be introduced to Equipment Breakdown exposures in intensive farm livestock operations (heating, cooling, feeding, watering, waste removal, and the wide variety of handling/processing equipment), seed growing and processing facilities, and others. Gain greater credibility with clients and be able to recommend the coverages most suited to their needs.
