How Echelon Brokers are Compensated

As an insurer, Echelon Insurance contracts with insurance Brokers across Canada. Insurance Brokers have the expertise to assess your insurance needs, provide advice and recommend coverage on your behalf. We take great care in ensuring that Echelon Insurance and our Brokers operate to the highest professional standards.


Brokers are compensated in the form of a commission payment derived from a percentage of your insurance premium. Brokers are obligated to disclose their commission earnings on a client’s policy, if so requested. The following is a breakdown of the commissions paid by Echelon Insurance to contracted Brokers:
