About Navacord

Headquartered in Toronto, Navacord’s group of companies include Broker Partners across Canada and Specialty Managing General Agents. Offering risk management and consulting solutions, Navacord Broker Partners are committed to the success of their clients and delivering expert advice in an increasingly complex world.

Navacord is the preferred partner for entrepreneurial insurance brokerages seeking to collaborate and grow while maintaining their unique identity and culture.

Our Story

At Navacord, entrepreneurship is in our DNA. Driven to grow their businesses and leverage scale without losing their identities to larger firms, industry leaders Jones DesLauriers Insurance Management Inc. and Lloyd Sadd Insurance Brokers, a third-generation family business, joined forces in 2014. The two established brands, with a proven track record for successful entrepreneurial growth and profitability, created Navacord to offer a unique ownership model and value proposition that benefits both clients and partners by combining a boutique experience with the backing and stability of a national firm.

 

This entrepreneurial spirit challenges the active M&A environment that has been changing the insurance landscape. Many small brokers are negatively impacted by acquisitions from large firms that strip them of their identity and local culture. Navacord preserves the independence of its partners, and builds on the deeply rooted, long-standing business relationships of its top experts and trusted advisors who are making a difference in the communities they serve.

 

Now one of the largest Canadian commercial insurance brokerages, with 90+ shareholders and growing, Navacord continues to aggressively pursue a forward-thinking approach to further enhance its sector expertise and help ensure clients’ success.

The Navacord Advantage

Distinctly Canadian

We focus on creatively servicing Canadian businesses with our nationwide network of over 400 dedicated and innovative employees. This allows Navacord to scale up, when needed, to influence top commercial markets.

Our Broker Partners

When benefits plans are based only on history without an eye to the future, they don’t account for the health care costs that will increase in the coming years, and companies are often unable to adapt to the new expenses.

This is why we created the ProBenefits plan, it allows for cost control through proactively integrating plans into growing companies. We specialize in providing formal, expert-driven plans that cut out waste and protect against rising costs from the start, we analyze and incorporate the potential liabilities unique to your business, so that preparation takes the place of damage control, and long-term saving takes the place of short-term discounts. It is through a combination of personalized service and disciplined cost containment strategy that we minimize risk as well as expenses, and develop viable employee benefits plans that will reward your company as a whole.
