Helping Our Clients Build Canada

Since 1909, Western Surety has built a growing business through a continual focus on our clients and our marketplace. In its first decade our predecessor, Saskatchewan Guarantee & Fidelity Company Ltd., had already established a reputation as ‘The Bond People.’ We’re proud to say that reputation still stands today.

Surety. Our First Business. Our ONLY Business.

Western Surety Company is the only insurance company in Canada which exclusively writes surety bonds for the construction industry, as well as a complete line of commercial surety bonds.

No distractions. No other lines of business. Just an uncompromising belief in knowing our business and helping our clients to help their clients.

Service from Coast … to Coast … to Coast

Western Surety is licensed to write surety bonds in all Canadian Provinces and Territories.

Thanks to our clients across the country, we have become one of the largest writers of surety bonds for the Canadian construction industry. Western Surety ranks among the top ten companies nationally in premium volume and has consistently maintained one of the lowest claims ratios in the industry.

Experienced People and Timely Decisions

With more than 250 years of combined surety experience working for you, Western Surety gives you the level of service you need when you need it. Our goal on new business is an initial response within one business day.

Building on Relationships and Personal Service

Western Surety is committed to building long term relationships by providing exceptional prequalification services that will assist contractors to grow profitably.

We take a common sense approach to underwriting that looks at more than just the numbers. We value the character, experience, management skills and track record of the people we’re dealing with.
