Navacord Partners with Vancouver Island’s Largest Commercial Broker, SeaFirst Insurance 

Toronto, ON, April 24, 2023 – Navacord is excited to announce the addition of SeaFirst Insurance Brokers, effective April 1, 2023. With roots dating back to 1950, SeaFirst Insurance has since grown to be one of the largest commercial brokers in BC and the largest independent broker on Vancouver Island.  

Headquartered in Brentwood Bay, SeaFirst’s other locations include Saanichton, Sidney, Salt Spring Island, Oak Bay, and Westshore. SeaFirst is well-known within their region as both a community-involved brokerage and as a people-first employer. With many long-term clients and staff, the Vancouver Island-based firm takes pride in their longevity and culture as a business, and serves as one of the largest Lloyd’s coverholders in Canada.  

“We heavily prioritize our community involvement at SeaFirst, and we have always made sure that our dedication to our people remains at the forefront of every decision we make,” says Doug Strong, President and CEO, SeaFirst. “We chose Navacord as our partner not only because they offer additional avenues for growth and market capacity, but also because they allow us to keep our positive culture intact.”  

SeaFirst offers a diverse range of P&C insurance solutions, including but not limited to: commercial, personal, home, auto, business, strata, travel and marine insurance.  

“To have SeaFirst select Navacord is a true testament to our partner model and demonstrates the success of our niche building strategy with their specialization in strata and commercial property lines,” says T. Marshall Sadd, Executive Chairman, Navacord. “We are pleased to deepen our presence in Western Canada and expand our offerings to clients with Seafirst’s strong Lloyd’s of London relationship.”  

SeaFirst Insurance marks Navacord’s fifth partnership of 2023 with a robust pipeline to continue throughout the remainder of the year.
