Company Overview

Chieftain’s roots go back as far as 1887, when the Travelers-acquired Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company was established.

Chieftain, whose motto is Sometimes, simple is better, offers standardized, comprehensive coverage for the most common types of claims; ideal for customers with uncomplicated insurance requirements, Chieftain may be a good fit for you if:

  • You haven’t filed an insurance claim for several years
  • You have a driving record that is free from accidents and infractions
  • You don’t live in an area that is prone to flooding or wildfires
  • You don’t have any gaps in your coverage

Chieftain keeps their rates competitive by offering simple insurance solutions; updating their policyholders’ information and premiums monthly.


Chieftain Advantages

If you rarely file insurance claims but still want to be prepared for the unexpected, then you probably don’t need a complicated insurance policy with many customized features. Chieftain’s insurance policies are streamlined to provide affordable, easy to understand coverage.

Chieftain’s competitive strengths include:

  • Monthly contract: Unless you cancel your policy, it’s automatically renewed monthly. Your driving history is also updated every month, so for example, if a speeding ticket drops off your record, or you become eligible for one of Chieftain’s many discounts, you don’t have to wait for a policy renewal date to see the savings on your monthly premium.
  • Ontario only: Chieftain Insurance coverage is exclusive to Ontario residents. As a policyholder, you will be insured by a company that has a unique understanding of Ontario-specific laws and considerations.
  • High liability limits: Your liability insurance is one of the most important types of coverage that you carry, protecting you from the financial burden that would be yours if you’re found to be at fault in a car accident or an accident that occurs on your property. All of Chieftain’s insurance policies include $2 million in liability coverage, helping to ensure that your assets are protected.

Insurance Products

Chieftain may be a budget-friendly option, but that doesn’t mean that their policies leave you vulnerable to financial strain if you need to file a claim. Some of Chieftain’s enhanced coverage limits and policy features include:

Auto Insurance

  • $2 million minimum liability coverage
  • Higher limits on accident benefits

Home, Tenants, & Condo Insurance

  • $2 million minimum liability coverage
  • No coverage limit for fine arts, silverware, and computers

Terrible

on 2020-01-29 19:12:25

As a young adult, my insurance was already astonishing. My first quote was $340/month. Then, in the mail i got a letter saying rates were going up (no accidents/tickets/claims) to $388/month. 4 months later I received another letter saying rates were going up AGAIN (no accidents/tickets/claims) to $460 a month!! Lastly, I received this letter today after 3 months saying insurance was to go up again to $481/month. Ridiculous. They do not even give an explanation and it’s extremely difficult when you are on a strict budget already.

It seems every month or two I was getting a new policy card and my rate would go up $2, down $2, blah blah. Then came the letter that it was going up $26/mo. - through no fault of my own (no tickets or accidents). Cancelled my policy next day and went with another provider, who is saving me ~$70/mo!

So I been with this company for 3 years now and they always increase their rates just because they can, for the last years alone I been having rate increase almost every month, recently I called them to get a quote to add another car in my policy and it was just inquiry to find in the next few days another mail telling me there's a rate increase even though they just increased the rate a few days before.
