Make Insurance Easy.

Dorchester Insurance Brokers Ltd is an independent, locally owned, insurance brokerage located in Dorchester, Ontario. The brokerage was founded in 1989 by Brian Wallace and Ken Thornton. Ken’s son, Derek, joined the brokerage in 2002, followed by Brian’s son, Owen in 2008. Upon Brian and Ken’s retirement in March of 2010, Derek and Owen took over full responsibility for the business.

For over 30 years now we have been taking care of our client’s insurance needs by specializing in personalized service. We also enjoy long-standing and strong relationships with the various insurance companies we represent.

Dorchester Insurance is proud of its commitment to customer service. It is without a doubt our highest priority. We are a professional and friendly office serving you with a wealth of knowledge and experience. We believe this is an important part of what sets us apart from our competition.

We offer a full range of insurance products and we’ll meet with you in person in order to understand your particular requirements and lifestyle needs. This makes it easier for us to maintain a more personal relationship and to provide you with a clearer understanding of your insurance options. As licensed insurance brokers, Derek and Owen are available to provide you with peace of mind and the security you deserve.

Dorchester Insurance is proud to support local community events and groups such as the annual Dorchester Fair, Dorchester Minor Hockey Association, Dorchester Minor Soccer, Dorchester Dolphins Jr C Hockey Team, Dorchester Minor Baseball and Dorchester Ringette.    We are members of the Thames Centre Business Association, Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario, and the London Insurance Brokers Association.
