TORONTO, July 12, 2022 – BrokerLink continues its expansion in the regions it operates with the acquisition of New Brunswick-based McTague Insurance, which closed June 1; Ontario-based DPM Insurance Group, and Alberta-based Crowsnest Insurance Agencies Ltd. (Crowsnest Insurance), both of which closed July 1. These three additions bring BrokerLink’s total acquisitions to 15 so far in 2022.
Expanding our footprint in New Brunswick
Founded in 1949, McTague Insurance of New Brunswick has locations in Saint John and Quispamsis, each with local brokers who are experts when it comes to offering personal and business insurance solutions for home, auto, boat, motorcycle, ATV, business interruption and commercial property.
“Our promise to customers over the years has been to deliver insurance coverage with excellent service, for their peace of mind,” says President of McTague Insurance, Chris McTague. “I trust that with BrokerLink’s network, size and experience, they will continue fulfilling this promise.”
Providing service to more Ontario communities
With roots tracing back to the 1920’s, DPM Insurance Group consists of five longstanding insurance brokerages with locations in Blenheim, Chatham, Essex, Tilbury, Harrow and Wallaceburg. The insurance advisors from DPM Insurance Group work with local community members, comparing prices and policies of several insurance companies to offer tailored insurance products. DPM Insurance Group adds additional home, auto, motorcycle, ATV, boat, trailer, tenant, business and farm insurance to BrokerLink’s slate of expertise.
Building on a strong foundation in Blairmore
Crowsnest Insurance has provided insurance services to the community of Blairmore for over 20 years offering a variety of products such as home, auto, condo, tenant, recreational vehicle and business insurance. Crowsnest Insurance's team of experienced insurance brokers add their years of expertise to further strengthen our organization.
DPM Insurance Group, McTague Insurance and Crowsnest Insurance professionals will continue to serve local community members as part of the BrokerLink team.
Joe D’Annunzio, President of BrokerLink, welcomes the newest team members and their customers, and states: “We believe that insurance is about people, and we’re dedicated to empowering our team members and providing exceptional customer service in the communities we serve. We continue to be a strong investor in the areas we operate, and we’re always ready to chat with broker principals who are thinking about the future of their brokerage.”

Since 1991 we’ve had a vision: to build a network of trusted insurance brokers across the country, working directly in the communities we serve. With over 200 branches and 3,000 employees, we’re proud to say that BrokerLink has become one of Canada’s largest property and casualty insurance brokerages.
