Stewart Morrison Insurance has been serving people in the Kawarthas since it was established in 1971 by Stewart Morrison. Since the opening of its first office located in Sunderland, Stewart Morrison Insurance has matured into a leading regional insurance services provider.
Over the years the company has evolved from being primarily a supplier of insurance for local farmers and families, to a regional supplier of insurance for municipalities, not-for-profits, and businesses as well. Now with five offices located in communities within Durham Region, Peterborough County, and the City of Kawartha Lakes the company is poised for continued growth.
The company's recent introduction of new products and its foray into the Peterborough market is a sign of their confidence in the marketplace and their own capacity to service an ever-expanding clientele.
