Customized Insurance Broker and Risk Management Assistance
Our brokers take time to conduct a personalized review of your business and risk exposures. We help identify types of claims and risk management techniques that can be implemented within your business as well as assist to transfer your business’ larger risk exposures to insurance products. Our brokers balance price with comprehensive products – to provide you with a range of competitive quotes and coverage options. We make the insurance process as simple and stress-free as possible!
Ongoing Insurance Review and Revisions
As your business grows, insurance needs typically change as well. We like to review how business is going with you annually – or throughout the year as you make changes – to make sure your coverage remains suitable. We will let you know what kind of changes warrant a review of your business insurance policies so you’re not left in the dark. Rest easy knowing your business is protected at every stage as your business evolves.
Ongoing Contractual Reviews
Contractual risks exist in virtually every business document. Our insurance brokers can help examine the contract language from a risk management and insurance perspective to help make sure you are aware of the liability you’re assuming, what is covered by insurance and what you are assuming within your business. Through a contractual review of the Insurance and Indemnity provisions, our brokers help you understand contractual issues (ideally before you sign them) and provide solutions and strategies to prevent a claim from occurring. Get the peace of mind you deserve knowing that we are in your corner.
If you need to file an insurance claim, our brokers are on your side to support you through the process when needed. Our brokers are exceptionally experienced with the claims process. We guide you in the right direction with what needs to be done – saving you time so you can get back to running your business as usual.
24/7 Web Portal Access & Certificate Issuing
Access your company’s insurance related documents whenever and wherever you need straight from your mobile device or computer. This includes the ability to issue your own certificates and pink cards, order changes, up-to-date schedules and upload documents. Quick and easy!
Administration Fees Disclosure
At Collis Insurance, our goal is to provide you with top quality insurance coverage that’s right for your business, balanced with price superior services (indicated above).
In a lot of cases, broker compensation includes commissions built within your insurance premium(s), paid by the insurers. The various insurers that we partner with have different compensation levels, ranging from 0 – 20% of the premium, depending on the specific type of policy and insurance company / specialty market. Additionally, as all clients are different, the advisory service levels needed on different policies differ from business to business as well.
Based on all of this information, Collis Insurance may charge additional non-refundable administration fee(s) which, in combination with commissions received, allow us to sufficiently service your account at the service levels and value desired.*
– When dealing with a specialty insurer is the best option for your company, where commission compensation is reduced (or not included at all) within the premiums charged, we will charge non-refundable administration fees to help cover our time to set up and service your policy through the year.
– With premiums starting as low as $100.00 annual, commission compensation cannot always reflect the work needed to provide you with quotes, arranging coverage, answering questions, handling the paperwork and providing ongoing services for your insurance needs for the year.
– To provide additional ongoing value-added services (eg. arrange premium financing on your behalf, ongoing contractual reviews and discussions/written responses on the insurance provisions of your contracts, certificate issuances, etc.).
*Where administration fee(s) are being charged, these fees will be fully disclosed in writing to our valued clients.

Wellspring Calgary As a new charity, Wellspring Calgary was delighted to learn about Andrea Collis and her special knowledge of insurance for charities and non-profit organizations. We could not be more satisfied with the service we have received since our initial meeting. Andrea took the time to understand our preliminary and changing needs. She sought out a variety of quotes and helped us to understand the merits of each. In the end, we were able to access insurance that met our needs at a reduced rate. We also have an agent who knows our organization and is responsive beyond our highest expectations with respect to every question we have. I would strongly recommend Andrea to any like-organization.

Cause & Effect Foundation
Cause & Effect Foundation “Insurance coverage has been an area of our Foundation that was badly neglected by our previous provider and your due diligence and patience in carefully accessing our needs was commendable. We especially appreciated the time you took to teach us about our insurance and the reasons why we should have it. It is not an area we are knowledgeable in and we have never had anyone explain things to us as effectively as you did.
Collis has provided our Not for Profit Foundation with more extensive coverage for less money than we were paying previously. This means a great deal to us. You have given us the confidence to move forward, with Collis as our provider, knowing that you will take care of our company so that we can do our jobs without having to worry about this area any more.”
At Collis, we are in it with you for the long run! We constantly strive to exceed your expectations. With us, we hope you’ll never feel ignored or overlooked, only cared for and valued as a business partner.
