There are several hundred employers in the property and casualty insurance industry in Canada. Some have more than 5,000 employees, some with as little as 5 employees.
Many are in major cities as well as many in small towns across the country. Look for insurance, reinsurance and mutual insurance companies, insurance brokerages, and claims adjusting firms.
As an insurance consumer, think about who handles your home, tenant or vehicle insurance. You likely are already familiar with a broker or an insurance company.

Talking with an industry professional can help you better understand the industry better.
