We’re your industry expert.

Our experience spans over 35 years in some of the world’s most challenging industries and sectors.

We recognize that your business and industry operates in a complex world. You may encounter supply chain risks. Trade and tariff disputes may leave your business vulnerable. Your company’s services and systems may be exposed to emerging threats, from cyber-attacks to extreme weather events. 

At Lawrie, we work with you to identify all of your risks, uncovering gaps that may have been overlooked. We understand the characteristics, market demands and risks of each industry in which we work. And we bring this deep knowledge to every client relationship.

Industries We Work With

We work with businesses in many of the top
Canadian and global industries.

Automotive Industry

The automotive continues to be one of the most significant drivers of the world’s economy. With technological advances in design, manufacturing, marketing and selling, this compelling sector still offers exciting possibilities.

Aviation & Aerospace

Since the first powered airplane and the first manned moon landing, the aviation and aerospace industry has reached unimaginable heights. From airplane manufacturing to aircraft operations, there are a vast number of specialized businesses in this sector. It’s an exciting time to work in aviation and aerospace.

Learn More

Communication, Media & Technology

No other industry has created a buzz like the communication, media and tech sector. We use digital electronics, software and internet-related services in every aspect of our lives. And, with smart homes and businesses as well as artificial intelligence, this industry is ever-evolving.

Learn More

Construction

Whether it’s building condos, infrastructure or industrial complexes, the construction industry is essential to our economic and community growth. With the high level of competition, frequent workplace injuries, damage to your company vehicles or the abundance of regulations, construction is a high-risk industry.

Learn More

Developers

From architectural drafts and financing to permits and construction, you know what goes into a new development. Each new project, whether small or large, offers vast opportunities – and risks.

Learn More

Energy & Power

The energy and power industry is incredibly important to our daily lives. Running a business organization in this sector comes with enormous responsibility and a distinctive set of risks.

Learn More

Food & Beverage Manufacturing

With ever-improving processing and packing systems as well as technological advancements, food and beverage manufacturing is constantly evolving. The industry’s rapid pace of change and its many sectors – from meat-processing to sugar refining to wine production – offer a vast number of opportunities.

Learn More

Hospitality

The hospitality industry encompasses a wide spectrum of service-related businesses – from hotels, restaurants and cafes to casinos and theme parks. For an industry that focuses on pleasure and enjoyment, there are a high number of risks that can result in claims.

Learn More

Infrastructure

Canada’s aging infrastructure (roads, bridges, transportation systems, sewer and water systems, power generation, hospitals, and schools) needs to be upgraded or replaced. This entails a massive effort and creates wide-ranging opportunities for organizations in this sector.

Learn More

Life Sciences

If you have a life sciences business, you recognize the tremendous potential for growth in Canada and around the world. Over and above drug development, fields such as agro-technology, biotechnology, food sciences and nanotechnology present exciting possibilities.

Learn More

Manufacturing & Wholesale

With technological advances, the evolution of equipment and machinery as well as updated processes, the pace of change in the manufacturing industry is incredible. In addition, a vast number of other sectors rely on manufacturing to get their products to consumers.

Learn More

Pharma

With financial pressures and significant competition from other sectors, pharma companies like yours have adopted new business models to improve the bottom line. For example, outsourcing manufacturing, or contract manufacturing, can reduce your production costs so you can concentrate on product design and marketing.

Learn More

Retail

With product specialization, sophisticated branding, international chains and e-commerce, the retail and service industry is changing rapidly. It’s never been more important for you to think outside of the store or restaurant to reach your customers. This means using all the digital channels that are available to you.

Learn More

Transportation

Whether you’re a sole owner-operator, manage a large fleet of trucks, or handle delicate cargo, we can help. We offer a convenient package policy, combining automobile, cargo and commercial general liability coverage.

Learn More

Trade Credit

All trade and commerce depends on the trade credit industry in some way. Businesses that use trade credit, can buy products now and pay for them later, freeing up cash for financial growth. However, if you’re a vendor or supplier who extends this type of credit, your biggest risk is the possibility that your customers won’t pay you.

Learn More

Private Equity & Venture Capital

The popularity of private equity and venture capital firms has increased over the years. Investing in companies (private and startup businesses) with the potential for long-term growth is exhilarating. But you must have extensive insurance coverage to protect you from the many risks you face.

Testimonials

Anita Farrell
Controller, Javelin Technologies

Lawrie Insurance Group understands our business and makes appropriate suggestions on insurance to cover our risks. We rely on their team to review contracts & leases and provide valuable insurance guidance.

Their commitment to outstanding customer service, tremendously fast response time, and consistent and excellent services, is the reason we choose LIG. I would gladly highly recommend LIG to anyone who might want to talk with me.

Eric L. Hoffman
President, Activation Laboratories Ltd.

The relationship has been absolutely flawless. Lawrie Insurance Group always manages to help us in choosing the right coverage that matches our risk exposure. We are extremely pleased to recommend their organization to interested parties.

Blair McGibbon
CFO, Ascend Fundraising Solutions, Inc.

Ascend FS has partnered with LIG since 2015 for Risk Guidance and Insurance Services in Canada and Internationally. When negotiating an important contract, we make sure to involve them and are considered part of our team. From the executive team to the service team I am so impressed by how they invest their time in getting to know their clients.

I highly recommend Lawrie Insurance Group to any business looking for a dedicated broker with a professional and personal touch.

Bogdan Frusina
CFO, Ascend Fundraising Solutions, Inc.

The excellence of their (LIG) work has been demonstrated many times by their ability to provide cost effective and timely solutions to our insurance program. Their ability to rapidly handle some difficult problems has been impressive and we have greatly appreciated our working relationship with LIG.

Eric Waxman
Chief Investment Officer, Spark Power Corp

As our business began to grow from a start-up business, we found that our existing broker was no longer able to meet our needs.  We performed a search that included larger regional brokers as well as national and international brokers.  We settled on Lawrie Insurance Group (LIG), and have not regretted our choice.  They are able to provide us with “large” brokerage experience and expertise as well as access to all the same insurance products, but we are always treated like their most important client.

Jim Long
President, Comtrad Strategic Sourcing Inc.

Comtrad has been working with the Lawrie team now for nearly 8 years for all of our insurance and benefits requirements. Their customer service has been excellent and prompt in providing solutions to our evolving and growing business.
