The Canadian operations of Great American Insurance Group intentionally focus on specialty niche markets where we can maintain a competitive advantage based on expertise, unique products or distribution. We offer a wide range of specialty commercial coverages managed by seasoned professionals with a deep knowledge and expertise in each of our specialty lines of business and customer groups and a thorough understanding of the Canadian marketplace.

Each business unit has significant operating autonomy to oversee important operation functions, such as underwriting, pricing, marketing, policy process and claims service. Each, however, is subject to controls over capital allocation, financial reporting, actuarial assessments and strategic direction.
