"We’ve been a client of Cowan Insurance Group for over 5 years. As our business continues to grow, we often need varying levels and types of insurance for contracts with clients. Cowan is able to quickly and effectively provide the coverage we need, earning its place as a trusted advisor to our business for risk management, cyber security, insurance and employee benefits."
"We’ve had challenges in the past getting the responsiveness and industry insights from insurance providers to make the right decisions for our business. Cowan stepped up to the plate for us well before any policies were initiated. They took the time to get to know our business and truly understand our needs through a full audit of our existing coverage. We couldn’t be happier with the team, the service and the solutions at Cowan."

"As a small enterprise in the startup world, it is important to find the right combination of coverage to cost. Cowan’s experience in the industry and knowledge of the needs of startup businesses has proven successful. We’ve seen dramatic improvements in our coverage and costs, which allows us to focus on growing our enterprise while effectively managing business risks."
CEO, Ignis Innovation Inc.
"We’re a non-profit organization and our insurance requirements can vary from a traditional business. Cowan took the time to review our business and was able to identify gaps in our coverage that we weren’t thinking about. From there, our business relationship quickly turned into a partnership as we grew together."
Director of Operations, Innovation Guelph
"It was really important for us to speak to someone who was able to speak our language. We’re in the tech industry, not insurance, so speaking to someone who understood our business and the varying needs of businesses in the tech space was key. Having Cowan step in and educate our team about what we needed was essential. I will continue to refer and recommend Cowan to those looking for insurance and risk management coverage."
"Cowan was able to offer me a better rate for my home and auto policies, as well as my business insurance. They provided me with effective risk management recommendations as well as options for my expanding business, allowing me to keep my insurance coverage in one location."
