Economical Insurance


About Economical Insurance

Economical Insurance is a proudly Canadian company founded back in 1871. The organization came together when the little town of Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario, sought to help their neighbours in times of hardship and disaster.

With its headquarters now situated in Waterloo, Ontario, Economical Insurance provides property and casualty insurance for individuals across the country.

Originally, Economical Insurance was named Economical Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Berlin, and espoused a philosophy of neighbours helping neighbours. While the name has changed slightly, Economical Insurance still holds true to its original ideals, helping those across Canada in their time of need.

With a high customer satisfaction post-claim rating, and accolades like the “P&C Insurer of the Year” for 2016, Economical Insurance’s main focus is ensuring their customers get the best possible service.

The company’s approach is best summed up by their mottos: “We focus on customers first,” “We bring our best,” and “We’re stronger together.”
