Canadian Direct Insurance is a Canadian federally chartered property and casualty insurance company that provides personal insurance solutions for its customers in British Columbia and Alberta.

Their pioneering over-the-phone distribution model was the first of its kind in the province.
Canadian Direct now offers customers in both BC and Alberta a range of personal auto, home and travel insurance options. Their advanced quoting system helps offer their customers competitive discounts and coverages to meet their home and automobile insurance needs. Canadian Direct Insurance is committed to providing competitively priced insurance products, a fair and timely response to claims, and quality customer service.
