About

Sussex Insurance has established itself as an innovative leader in the insurance industry in British Columbia since opening its first location in North Vancouver in 1976.

Our Vision

Bringing insurance to the people.

Our Mission

To provide the best customer experience in insurance.

Ken Armstrong introduced the concept of franchising to the British Columbia insurance industry in 1989, with the opening of the first franchise office on Granville Street in Vancouver. Sussex Insurance is a franchise network and today operates with more than 45 offices throughout BC, with locations inside The Real Canadian Superstore, Walmart, T&T Stores, and Save On Foods.

We’re easily accessible, and the extended hours of operation from 9am to 9pm seven days a week takes the stress and hassle out of purchasing insurance. We’re available when it’s convenient for you.

We are proud that 1 in 14 British Columbians transacts their Autoplan at a Sussex Insurance location. Sussex Insurance has built itself through attention to customer service and convenience, attempting to make the insurance process as streamlined and efficient as possible for every customer.
