RSA Canada Group’s Canadian History

The company is one of the oldest insurers in Canada with roots dating back to 1833. Fire was the early catalyst for the insurance industry that grew in Canada during the 1800s. A small fire could destroy a city block as most of the homes were made of wood. Large fires in Toronto and Montreal caused some insurance companies to declare bankruptcy.
