Chad Buell, along with many others at The
Co-operators, turned my nightmare of losing my car in a total loss accident into an experience where I saw people work together to go above and beyond my expectations. I was in a tough spot, losing my car and job all in the same week, and they took care of everything for me and did it so quickly that I was able to get back on the road with a new car so I could continue my job search. I have been with The Co-operators for 15 years, and have always been very happy, but this experience will guarantee me a life-long client. I wouldn't ever consider anyone else for my insurance needs.
Thank you so much!

Why choose co-operatives?

Co-operatives like The Co-operators Group Limited connect their values to supporting the communities where they live and work. They are viable businesses that are more concerned with serving your needs than making money, and they look for ways to serve you better by creating ways for you to influence their business decisions. In return, they ensure you have the information you need to make choices that are best for you.

There are hundreds of co-ops benefiting Canadians across the country; all are strong businesses owned and operated by the members who use their services and governed based on shared values. Look for them in your community.
