Insurance is so much more complicated than just a commodity. We aim to educate our customers so together we can make the best decision for your needs. We want to make certain you know exactly what you're purchasing when you first purchase it! We strive to be the best insurance brokers in the province.
We have been in business for several decades now in both Aberdeen and Hanley. In 2012, Sarah Edwards bought Aberdeen Agencies, and in 2015, she bought Brightwater Insurance. In 2020, we have rebranded to one name: Bora Insurance Brokers. Bora means best in Swahili - Sarah has spent a significant amount of time in Kenya, so the new name fit our objectives well. We pride ourselves on not just being a business in the community, but being part of that community. You may see us out curling, or at fundraising events, flipping pancakes at community breakfasts, or when we're not around, donating some money so our local kids and sports teams can have a better experience. We strive for our communities to be the best they can be.

At Bora Insurance Brokers, every single client has a different need for their coverages. We are able to find the right product for you, and we can even make a custom product! It's with creative thought that we have to mix and match coverages, investigate the right insurers, and find out what works best for you. If you have a question, or you think something may not be insurable, just ask us - the answer might even surprise you.
We really believe in what we sell. Insurance is peace of mind, and we want you to have that. If you don't have it, we don't have it. So, we will work hard to make sure that you are covered as best as you can be. There is nothing worse than thinking you have coverage and then finding out when it's too late that you don't have coverage. We work to educate our customers to help them understand what is covered, but also, what isn't covered, so they are prepared when it comes time for a claim. We also work to educate ourselves on our insurers' coverages, their wordings, and available coverages out there from other companies so we are giving you the best advice possible.
At Bora Insurance Brokers, we are community players. We support the community via donations, volunteering, and participating in local activities. We are involved, and try to be involved with our customers' lives. With our passion for what we do, and our passion for our communities, we want to help everyone succeed. This could be the local 4-H club, curling club, the Parks & Rec board, or it could be organizing cancer fundraisers. We try to make people's lives better not only with insurance, but outside of work as well, and for that I think we are pretty awesome.
