We're the friend of small business.

Spark Insurance was formed with one goal in mind: to do insurance differently. We want it to be easier for small businesses to get insured, which is why we’ve simplified the process, expanded coverage offerings and scrapped the outdated practices of the past. Now it takes less than 5 minutes to apply for a free, no obligation quote.

At Spark, we provide valuable educational resources and an honest, secure and uncompromisingly user-friendly online experience for our clients. It’s really that simple. Whether you’re a cafe, personal trainer or a member of the BC Chamber of Commerce, we promise to remain innovative and trusted in everything we do.

Our clients are at the heart of our business. By leveraging group buying and utilizing technology for efficiencies, we make it easier and cheaper for small businesses to get insured.
