ALIGNMENT Matters | insurance insights & news

We just broke a record…and it’s all thanks to YOU! I’m thrilled to announce that ALIGNED clients nominated 49 Canadian charities for our $5,000 Giving Generously donation

​On behalf of the entire team, I’d like to thank everyone who took a moment to connect with their Advocate and nominate a charity. We’re now creating content about each one of these amazing charities in anticipation of our voting period which launches in late October…so please stay tuned or click here to learn more about our giving generously campaign!

In the meantime, September is always a month about change. As leaves start turning and crisp fall air entices people to savour the outdoors, there’s also a palpable enthusiasm for new things. Here at ALIGNED, we just welcomed Advocate Darryl Gautreau to the team and launched two more 100% online insurance products

One of the difficult realities of COVID have been changes to business operations. And because a property that is unoccupied for more than four days can be considered vacant, the need for vacant property insurance keeps growing.

We know that business owners continue to juggle a lot and that’s why we’re pleased to now offer 100% online vacant property insurance. Using our simple online application you can get a free quote and buy essential coverage for vacant property 24/7.

And with online retail sales becoming the new normal, we’ve developed a new product liability solution for Amazon retailers that meets the specific insurance requirements that Amazon released on September 1, 2021.

These are just a few examples of how we’re helping people find better options in the Canadian insurance marketplace. Every day, our Advocates are helping people find better business insurance. Call one of us using our dedicated toll-free numbers and experience the ALIGNED difference for yourself!

As always, here are some insights that I hope you will find both useful and interesting.

About Us | Why Darryl Gautreau is proud to be an ALIGNED Advocate

We’re different. That is to say, our exclusive focus on business insurance sets us apart. Certainly, being different is just one of the many reasons why Canadian insurance professionals decide to join the ALIGNED team.

Darryl Gautreau recently joined our growing team. Darryl is an Advocate and reports to SVP, Manager & Owner Darcy Franko-Felice. He works closely with ALIGNED colleagues across Canada. 

“Focusing entirely on business insurance and our 18 points of differentiation sets ALIGNED apart from many competitors. Too many brokerages provide mainly personal insurance products and only dabble in business insurance on the side, where they may not have the expertise to properly protect their client’s business exposures.  Working solely with business owners keeps us up to date with coverage offerings and allows us to anticipate the needs of our clients.”  Keep reading…

Giving Frequently – Our people helping charities and the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society

We know that improving lives and advancing causes is what drives Canadian charities and non-profits. Connecting people to community, educational, environmental, food, healthcare and social programs is at the heart of what the not-for-profit sector does. 

We also understand how deeply charities and non-profits resonate with people. This is why, each month, one of us selects a charity or non-profit organization that we are passionate about. And then we, as an organization, donate to that organization.

This month, Advocate Kelly Chambers selected the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society for an ALIGNED Insurance Giving Frequently donation.

“The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is a registered charity, established in 1873. The Society and its network of communities facilitate and provide for province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of animal well-being.”
