About Us

Family-Run and Customer-Focused

The whole team at Mitchell & Whale Insurance Brokers

Mitchell & Whale Insurance Brokers have been looking after the insurance needs of clients like you for over 60 years. Harold J. Mitchell started the business in 1948, acquiring his first customers by cold-calling all the Mitchells in the local phone book. He quickly expanded to other family names. His sons later took over the business, and in the 1990s moved the business to Whitby, Ontario, where they bought out local broker Bev Whale.

Today Adam Mitchell operates the brokerage, the third generation in the business. It’s a family-run business with family-based values, where clients are part of the family too.

About Insurance Brokers

Why work with an insurance broker, rather than directly with an insurance company

  • Independent, Professional Advice: Insurance brokers work for you, the client, not the insurance company. This allows us to give you independent, professional advice, not tied to one particular insurer.
  • Best Coverage at Lowest Rates: Like a financial advisor who reviews your investments and ensures you’re getting the best interest rates, we review your insurance policies and ensure you are getting the lowest premiums for the coverage you need as your lifestyle changes.
  • Many Insurers, Same Broker: At Mitchell & Whale, our clients switch insurance companies on average about every three years, but they stay with us, their dedicated insurance broker. We shop your rates annually and will advise you if you could save money with another insurance company.
  • Help When You Need It: If you ever need to make a claim, we’re here for you to guide you through the claims process, making you aware of all of your options.

1% of Profits Go to Charity

We care about our customers and we care about the community too. Each year we donate 1% of our profits to a charity selected by our staff. It’s our way of doing some good for those in need.

If you would like to suggest a charity for us to support, please let us know.
