Traders General began in Scarborough, Ontario, in 1954. The company has since been acquired by Aviva Canada, one of the largest insurers in the country, but still maintains its focus on providing home and auto insurance to large and mid-sized groups across the country.
The subsidiary provides group insurance, which is offered to various groups of people, such as companies or professional associations. In exchange for collectively insuring the home and/or vehicle of each member of the group, Aviva Traders offers lower premiums than on standard individual policies. Individuals looking to insure their assets separately from a group can do so with Aviva Canada.
Traders is also able to grant their customers access to Aviva Canada complementary service, the Halo Assistance Program. This exclusive program gives customers convenient telephone access to qualified lawyers, health professionals, real estate experts and more, who can help provide them with professional advice at no added cost.

Those who are eligible to get their home and auto insurance though Traders benefit from the discounts that are associated with various group policy plans. The specifics of each discount depends on variables particular to a group, including its size and origin.
An additional discount is built into the very concept of group insurance. On average, the cost of a policy obtained via a group is less expensive than one obtained individually. This is because Traders is able to provide policies in bulk at a reduced rate per policy.
