Although Core formally was established in 2000, the late Dave Parry and his son, Mark Parry have provided insurance solutions for over 30 years to Islanders and throughout British Columbia.

After many years of research and development, CORE Canada expanded to include Woodsure Insurance Protection, an Underwriting Facility (not a broker) which underwrites risks on behalf of major international insurance companies that are committed to the wood products and forestry space, including wood construction. We are champions of the wood industry and are the only insurance program in Canada dedicated to the industry since 2006.

Our latest endeavor in 2018, CORE Insurance Services Inc., offers a suite of ICBC Auto insurance for those on Vancouver Island and the mainland. As your local insurance broker, we feel we understand the individual needs and issues of our clients’ and the communities we serve.

At CORE our ‘core commitment’ is to help you be “prepared for the worst, but hope for the best!”

Insurance helps us to do exactly what this quote suggests. We all face many kinds of risks: risk of accidents, having an illness, being a victim of a natural disaster or fire, and above all risk of loss of life. All these risks not only come with pain and suffering but also hurt financially. Insurance is one way of being prepared for the worst; it offers the surety that the economic part of the pain will be taken care of.

Throughout our company’s history, we’ve grown with our communities to become an integral part of our clients’ lives and offering peace of mind makes us all feel better about what challenges life may send our way.
