CFIB and Northbridge Insurance partner to protect small businesses
TORONTO, November 9, 2017 – The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) is proud to announce that it has chosen Northbridge Insurance as its exclusive commercial insurance partner to help ensure its members get the right coverage to protect their businesses.
“Small business owners wear every hat when it comes to running their business,” said Dan Kelly, President at CFIB. “Northbridge Insurance understands our members don’t have a lot of time, so they’ve developed an insurance solution that’s fast and simple and recognizes the important role brokers play in assessing business owners’ unique needs.”
Through the partnership, CFIB members have exclusive access to an enhanced small business insurance solution from Northbridge Insurance that includes comprehensive property and liability coverage, plus cyber risk protection. Members also receive Legal Expense Insurance, covering up to $100,000 in legal costs, underwritten by DAS Canada.
In addition, CFIB members enjoy unlimited telephone access to Legal Assist services, which provide general legal advice for business questions ranging from product ideas to contract legalese and employment issues.
The partnership is unique in that it also supports the CFIB membership base: Northbridge has ensured that CFIB’s insurance broker members can easily offer the program to prospective customers.
“We’ve spent a lot of time connecting with small business owners to get a better understanding of their needs and the challenges they face,” said Ilda Dinis, Senior Vice President, Customer Innovation & Experience at Northbridge Insurance. “We’re excited to work with brokers to help ensure our customers get the right protection for their businesses.”
