About Us

Rhodes & Williams Limited was established in 1935 and has since grown to be one of the largest independently owned insurance brokerages in Ontario. Our reputation has been built upon our willingness to work with clients on their terms, offering them greater choice and flexibility in their insurance and lifestyle needs. Some of our clients have been with us for over half a century and that’s because they know our insurance brokers and the whole team care about keeping their family, their business, and their way of life protected.

Our History

For over eight decades, we have offered our customers unique benefits that have made us the province’s first choice for professional advice on personal and business insurance.

Our insurance brokers are exceptionally well-connected, and they work for you – to source exceptionally well-priced and custom-designed insurance packages that protect what matters most to your family or business. With staff in Ottawa and Toronto, we’re like your local insurance broker with national capabilities.

As a larger brokerage, we have many brokers who are experts in a wide variety of insurance specialties and industries, so we can match you with a broker who has the expertise to develop the insurance plan right for you.

Our Brokers

We are defined by the service, experience and impartial advice our brokers provide to our clients. Our brokers share a philosophy of providing our clients with personal, hands-on and highly responsive service. After all, one of the main benefits of working with a broker is building a relationship based on compassion and mutual understanding. Remember, we don’t sell you insurance, we purchase insurance for you on your behalf. That’s why our brokers are 100% committed to putting together an insurance plan that’s right for you.

Meet our Team

Your peace of mind is our business. More than the products, solutions and innovations we bring to the table, it’s our ability to respond to your needs that matters most. Our professional credentials in the insurance industry are only outweighed by our desire, dedication and passion to do the right thing by you, our customer. Whenever you have a question, comment or concern, please don’t hesitate to contact any one of our committed insurance professionals.
