When we started Surex, it was a brick-and-mortar insurance brokerage in the small town of Magrath in Southern Alberta. We both have experience living and working in small towns, and we knew that we both wanted to stay there. However, we also had greater visions for expanding our business beyond Magrath and making an impact on our industry. We set out to build Surex as an online insurance provider (think Travelocity, but for insurance.) Today, is Canada’s fastest growing online insurance provider.

Magrath, Alta. - based Surex places home, auto and commercial lines and says it can deliver 10 quotes online in 10 minutes or less.

If a person gives Surex information to generate a home or auto quote, the brokerage defines that person as a lead, said Matt Alston, co-founder and chief operating officer of Surex.
