Metro General Insurance Corporation Limited joins Intact

Intact announced in February that it has acquired Newfoundland and Labrador-based Metro General Insurance Corporation Limited.

Metro General Insurance Corporation is a privately owned property and casualty insurance company specializing in home, auto and liability insurance with $27 million in direct written premiums. The company operates across Newfoundland and Labrador and in rural Nova Scotia through a network of 13 brokers.

The Metro General acquisition is expected to improve Intact’s market position in Newfoundland and Labrador. “Over the years, the Metro General team has built a highly successful organization providing quality services to its brokers and customers,” said Alan Blair, Senior Vice President of Intact Insurance. “While the acquisition will allow us to expand our reach, Metro General customers will benefit from the broad offering of products and services of Intact Insurance and our outstanding customer-driven orientation,” said Blair.
