 Aviva Insurance Canada

Aviva Canada (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the UK-based Aviva Plc located in Ontario) is a leading property and casualty insurance group in the Canadian industry.

Few groups have been offering coverage as long as Aviva Insurance; the company was first founded in the UK in the late-17th century, originally going by the name "Hand in Hand". The first-ever Canadian-based Aviva company, Canada Accident Assurance Company, was incorporated many years later in 1835.

Skip ahead to the present day, and the Aviva Insurance Company has grown into one of the largest titans of the industry, having employees, offices, partners and over a million customers across the globe, including Canada.

Whether you've been in a severe car accident or would like to protect your home from unforeseeable risks, you can trust one of the world's largest insurance groups, Aviva.
