car, and business insurance broker as it expands.

As a third-generation broker with over 40 years of experience serving clients in the West Island and throughout Quebec, KBD Insurance has firmly established itself as a trusted insurance provider in the community.

Building on this success, the brokerage opened the doors of its new Ottawa office in 2022 and now offers home, car, and business insurance throughout Ontario. As KBD expands, they’ve hired new commercial brokers and are doubling down on their business insurance services.

Commercial clients in a range of industries can experience a tailored customer experience, as KBD partner Adam Strumas explains:

“We specialize in the hospitality field, manufacturers, distributors, consultants of all kinds, personal trainers, yoga instructors, caterers… And then anything real estate. Six plexes and up, revenue properties, semi-commercial, and fully commercial buildings.”

As a boutique broker, small to mid-sized businesses are KBD’s bread and butter, and business owners can expect a personalized, white-glove service when working with them.

industries that KBD insures.

As they expand their services and locations, KBD is also investing in brand awareness, which prompted the launch of a business podcast filmed directly from the Dorval office.

The podcast taps into the West Island and greater Montreal business community and highlights local entrepreneurs in everything from hospitality and food, to fashion, media and transportation.

In episode 37 of the Freemium Podcast, KBD President Curtis Killen discusses

marketing, branding, and e-commerce with Anthony Ciavirella of Manmade.

With nearly 50 episodes filmed, the podcast has paid off by making KBD top of mind as a broker for local businesses in Montreal. 

Looking ahead, the West Island broker will continue to expand its brand and clientele in home, car, and business insurance across Ontario and Quebec.

Building on its 40-plus year history in insurance services, the goal is to provide an excellent service and become a go-to provider in both provinces.
