Letting your policy auto-renew might be convenient, but it could mean leaving money on the table.
Meet SGI Canada home insurance.
SGI Canada was founded more than 70 years ago when the province of Saskatchewan passed The Saskatchewan Government Insurance Act, creating its own Crown corporation: Saskatchewan Government Insurance.
Today, the property and casualty insurer is headquartered in Regina. While its presence is still strongest in Saskatchewan, SGI has since rebranded to SGI Canada, offering products to four other provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. SGI offers home insurance coverage across Canada.
In Canada, SGI Home Insurance continues to grow while competing in domestic and international markets. In the 2018-19 year, 40% of its premiums were sold outside Saskatchewan.
The company works with more than 500 independent insurance brokers and aims to offer employees a philosophy of offering comprehensive, affordable insurance protection throughout the country.
One of the company’s latest achievements is being awarded a five-star carrier status in 2019 by Insurance Business Canada Magazine based on a survey of hundreds of insurance brokers.
SGI earned five-star status in six categories: underwriting experience, range of products, the competitiveness of its rates, product training and marketing support, tech and automation, and commitment to the broker distribution channel.
This page will cover why SGI might be a good choice for your home insurance policy, how to make a home insurance claim with SGI and how to contact SGI home insurance agents if you have questions.
