As a leading Canadian financial services co-operative, Co-operators offers multi-line insurance and investment products, services, and advice to build financial strength and security. With over $56 billion in assets under management, we provide financial solutions and security through property and casualty (P&C) insurance, life insurance, investment management, institutional asset management and brokerage operations. We are governed by member organizations, including co-operative organizations, credit union centrals and representative farm organizations.
We were founded in 1945, when a group of farmers organized to take care of their families and communities when traditional insurers would not meet their needs. Today, with over 600 locations across the country, over 6,000 employees and a dedicated Financial Advisor network of over 2,500 licensed insurance representatives, we remain true to our roots: putting the needs of our clients and our communities first.
As a financial services co-operative, we are rooted in the idea that together, we are stronger, safer, and more resilient. Our vision to be a catalyst for a sustainable society is reflected in everything we do, including our community investment programs, strategic partnerships, and active volunteerism. We champion and fund the development of community-oriented co-operatives and social enterprises, invest for positive impact, and work hard to contribute to communities across Canada by supporting financial literacy, mental health, flood safety, and sustainability initiatives and programming.
