Founded in 1978 by Thomas B. Christy, CHRISTY INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD., has been providing quality insurance and group benefit solutions to our clients for over 30 years. Our commitment to excellence, integrity, and customer service has made us an industry leader in Vancouver’s Group Benefits market for the past three decades. CHRISTY INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD., was built on selling individual insurance solutions to individual clients. This eventually transitioned into the design and negotiation of corporate Employee Benefit solutions giving us a unique position in the marketplace. While we consider ourselves specialists in the Employee Benefit marketplace, we are able to support you with your personal insurance needs.

Long term relationships with our clients are critical to the success of our business. Long term relationships signify that we understand your ever changing needs, and our ability to grow and adapt with you. We think this reflects the level of care and commitment we offer to all of our clients. We offer you a promise to deliver exceptional service. Every person and each organization has different needs. It is our responsibility to work closely with you to help identify your needs and offer a suitable solution ensuring that your family, or your business, is properly cared for.

As an independent insurance brokerage firm, CHRISTY INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD., represents you our client, not the insurance companies. By having access to all insurance companies in the marketplace we are committed to finding the very best cost effective solution for your needs.
