Buying insurance

In Québec, the insurance market is highly competitive. Insurers compete on price, types of coverage, and the services they offer. It’s a good idea to shop around and compare the many choices you’ll be offered.

How to buy insurance

When you want to buy insurance in Québec, you can deal with :

  1. an insurance company (directly);
  2. an agent representing a single insurance company;
  3. a broker who does business with several insurance companies. ​

You can reach any of these by phone. Many insurance companies also allow you to ask for a submission via an online form.
