About Us Products Contact Us

QBE’s team in Canada is led by Peter Askew and offers a wide range of business insurance products, with particular areas of expertise including Property, Casualty and Financial Lines.

QBE opened its first Canadian office in Toronto in 2010 and went on to open an office in Vancouver in 2015.

QBE underwriters in Canada insure risks under our Lloyd’s underwriting license. This means that policyholders benefit from both the financial strength of QBE and the Lloyd's market.

We have formed a highly qualified and knowledgeable team that can tailor the wide range of products that QBE offers to the specific needs of our clients. We have gained a reputation for being flexible and willing to consider unusual risks.

We carry out all of our work via insurance brokers and we are proud of the high quality service that we offer to our partners and their clients.
