Cory Young

I started with The Co-operators in 2011 and loved the fact that they are one of the leading multi-line insurers in the country. They make it easy for me to help people protect what’s important to them while saving and growing to meet their financial goals.

When I was a child, my family suffered a loss in our home due to water and sewage damage. We were covered by The Co-operators, and experienced first hand how great they were to deal with and how they stood behind their promises. It was an easy choice for me to come to TheCo-operators,because I knew the products and services I would be offering were backed by such a reputable company.

I have a passion for developing relationships, and over the years I’ve surrounded myself with a team that feels the same way. We’re looking forward to getting to know you and your own personal needs and prove our dedication to our work and our clients.

“Cory put insurance in ‘my’ language so I fully understood what coverage we had and what we may need. I chose Cory as my advisor because of his knowledge and personal touch. He is a pleasure to deal with and extremely responsive. Cory Young Insurance Group Inc.’s client service is exceptional. Claims processing is extremely thorough, accurate and very timely.

All the staff members I have dealt with at Cory Young Insurance Group Inc. are pleasant and make me feel like we are important.”

- Lynn Coverdale

“Three years ago, we decided to purchase a plot of land and build a custom home. Although our general contractor carried his own insurance policy for the construction, the bank required that we obtain liability insurance for the vacant land before they would agree to finalize our lot loan.

We contacted several other insurance providers, but none of them offered the insurance coverage that we required. We contacted Cory and he immediately reassured us that he could find a way to get us the coverage we needed and he quickly came through on his promise.

At the same time, we decided to re-evaluate our life insurance needs. Cory thoroughly explained our various options without giving a high-pressure sales pitch and even came out to our home to finalize the paperwork when we made a decision. At the time, we thought that we were receiving competitive auto insurance rates through a group rate plan at work, but decided to have Cory obtain a quote on our behalf. We were blown away when he was able to obtain a quote at considerable savings by bundling our insurance products together.

The best part is that we have not seen our Auto insurance rates creeping up yearly since we took out the policy, unlike our past experience with other providers. We were thrilled with Cory’s friendly, professional demeanor, his knowledge of insurance products, and his prompt response to our inquiries. We recommend Cory’s office to friends and family without hesitation and will be contacting his office again for our future insurance needs.”

- James and Julie Silva

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.
