Tailored Solutions for Canada’s Booming Construction Industry

Canada’s Construction industry is estimated to reach $300 billion in 2023. Unexpected costs arising from damages or accidents at a construction site can be severe. Whether a commercial project or residential, Burns & Wilcox has the capacity to offer large limits or small to meet the proper insurance needs for clients.

We also provide protection against damage to personal property during the course of construction. A tailored solution can put in place coverage while a property is under construction, along with property moved to off-site locations and in transit.
