State Farm conducted business in Canada for decades and provided coverage in Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick. In 2015, its Canadian book of business was purchased by the Desjardins Group, making the State Farm brand officially defunct in Canada. The acquisition also included State Farm's mutual fund, loan, and living benefits companies, making Desjardins Group the third-largest property and casualty insurance provider in Canada.
State Farm car insurance policyholders will get to keep their agent, though they are now captive agents for Desjardins. It is no longer possible to get car insurance quotes for new State Farm policies.
In addition, claims should now be filed through the Desjardins website. According to the company, customers should not see “any changes to the look and feel of [their] policies in the short term.” All policies are now underwritten by Certas Home and Auto Insurance Company or Desjardins Financial Security Life Assurance Company.
