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

I am happy with Chieftain but I have to leave the company

on 2020-03-07 14:18:05

Two years ago, I was bumped by a car and Chieftain readily came to my assistance. I was so happy then. My 2 cars and home insurance were bundled and the rate was good. Now we added another car and my monthly premium were still competitive. The insurance was renewable every month and lately I noticed that the insurance rate is going up, unstoppable. I looked around for cheaper insurance company with the same coverage until I found one. My renewal is on March 10, 2020 and I regret to leave this company that I initially come to like but somehow giving me a hard time in the past months...
