Meet La Capitale
La Capitale began as a mutual fund company in 1940, established by civil servants working on Parliament Hill in Quebec City. Now, more than 75 years later, La Capitale is one of the largest insurance companies in Quebec, offering savings and retirement plans, mortgage financing and auto insurance.
La Capitale has kept its headquarters in historic Quebec City, but has expanded its insurance and financial services to neighbouring provinces by acquiring regional insurance companies like York Fire & Casualty Insurance Co., an Ontario and Alberta-facing auto and property insurer.
La Capitale has won a number of business awards, including Aon’s Best Employers for 2018 (for the third time in six years), BOMA’s Building of the Year 2017, and Visionary Company of the Year 2013. La Capitale also has a hand in social initiatives that safeguard local communities and drive environmental goals, which contributes to its reputation as one of Quebec’s most trusted insurance brands.
