Canadian Heritage

The history of The Dominion parallels that of Canada itself. Founded in 1887 with Sir John A. Macdonald as our first president, The Dominion established its headquarters in Toronto when the city’s population was just 181,000. Expanding across Canada over the decades to come, the company has withstood more than a century of economic change to earn a reputation for stability, integrity and strength.

Today, The Dominion remains one of the country’s largest property and casualty insurers. We continue to base our Head Office in Toronto – built by the company at the corner of Adelaide Street and University Avenue in 1962 – with regional offices in Vancouver, BC, Edmonton and Calgary, AB, London, Oakville, Markham and Ottawa, ON, Charlottetown, PEI, and Halifax, NS.
