While there are thousands of Canadian businesses that enjoy local or national success, for those companies that want to push the limits of that success and become international players, having a presence in one of the world’s largest economies, and one that is right next door, is fundamental to achieving those goals.
A key to cross border and long-term success is having insurance in place that addresses the risks that come with doing business in another jurisdiction – especially if your plan is to have operations in several U.S. states that have their own unique laws, taxation, licensing, regulators, procedures and customs.
At ALIGNED, insuring businesses is all we do. We work with Canada’s top insurance companies some of which have physical operations on the ground in almost every state of the Union, ensuring our clients have a local insurance representation whether they have operations in New York, San Francisco or Idaho.
And with a dedicated ALIGNED advocate at your disposal, you have the convenience and responsiveness of a single Canadian point of contact to coordinate all any/all US insurance needs including US workers compensation.
Advantages of Our Cross Border Insurance Packages
While getting your foot in the door of the American market can launch your sales to stratospheric heights, the U.S. is known for its highly litigious landscape that changes depending on which state you’re in.
