Why Us?

Five Reasons to Insure your Home and Car with Us



#1 Big Savings

Let’s cut to the chase: We save you money – lots of it. How? It’s called ‘buying power’ and we’ve got it, thanks to the 900,000 members of the Canadian Building Trades Unions. It allows us to secure preferred rates that you simply cannot get elsewhere. Getting a quote is easy, free and fast - call us today toll-free at 1-844-872-8722. People are saving hundreds of dollars per year more often than not.

#2 No more traps

You know the racket: The minute you make a claims inquiry because of a minor incident, it’s on your record and your rates go up, or your accident forgiveness gets used up. We guide and protect you against traps like this. Expect risk management support and claims counseling without consequences. Don't forget, at Union Power we are insurance brokers, not agents - we work for you, not the insurance company!
