Meet Johnson Insurance
Boasting over 100 years of experience, this St. John’s-based company provides auto, home, and travel insurance to most of Canada, with the exception of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the territories.
Johnson Insurance products are now entirely web-based. That means policyholders can purchase insurance and manage their policy through Johnson’s members-only website without ever going through an agent or broker. And customers like it this way: in 2017, Johnson was rated the second best auto insurer in Alberta, according to J.D. Power.
Johnson offers customers a good array of coverage options and perks. These include discounts for policyholders who renew with Johnson and extra rewards through its corporate partnership with Air Miles.
The company offers a variety of discounts, all of which reward safe driving: drivers with clean driving records will pay lower rates, as will drivers who have more years of driving experience under their belt.

- Bundling auto and home insurance policies together
- Insuring multiple vehicles with Johnson
- Discounts for safe and experienced drivers
- Discounts for groups, including associations, employers, and academic institutions
First accident forgiveness - If your driving record is otherwise stellar, the company won’t increase your premium rate after your first accident.
Members-only website - Manage your policy at your own convenience using Johnson’s website for policyholders.
