McDougall Insurance merges with Ritchie Insurance

Belleville-based McDougall Insurance Brokers announces another merger

Toronto, ON (July 1, 2019) – McDougall Insurance and Financial announced today that they have merged with Ritchie Insurance effective immediately (July 1, 2020) and are pleased to welcome the employees of Ritchie Insurance into the McDougall organization.

Ritchie Insurance is a very successful broker operating out of Parry Sound with 8 employees. They now join with McDougall Insurance and Financial to form an independent broker with 38 offices in Eastern Ontario, the Ottawa Valley and Central Ontario with 420 employees with over $415 million in property casualty premium and a strong and rapidly growing financial services division.

All Ritchie Insurance employees will remain with the organization and their branch office location will continue. All members of the Ritchie Insurance management team including the current President Dave Ritchie will continue with the organization after this merger.

Ritchie Insurance is an excellent fit with the McDougall organization which is split with both commercial and personal lines as well as financial services. The merger will greatly enhance our reach in Central Ontario as it adds a new location to our existing offices in this region.

As an independent broker we are committed to continuing our growth pattern and offering great service and great products for our customers.
