Insurance coverage tailored for you

Newman Insurance provides general insurance coverage from its nine convenient locations with fully licensed insurance brokers in Ottawa, Belleville, Campbellford, Colborne, Kingston, Madoc, Marmora, Stirling and Trenton.

We have over 70 staff members with a combined total of over 900 years of experience in the insurance profession. We are dedicated members of your community and are familiar with all of the challenges that face our local properties, businesses and farms.

We work with over fifteen major insurance markets, as well as several specialty insurers. As an insurance broker, our job is to work for our clients and get them the policies they need, as well as helping with claims. An insurance broker is your own personal shopper for insurance as well as a helping hand with an event of a claim, with no extra charges for our services.

Why an insurance broker is the right choice

An insurance company or bank only has one set of policies available, which limits your choice of policies and premiums. A broker, on the other hand, works for you to find the best policy for your particular situation, which may mean looking at several insurance companies. We can get you the best possible insurance at the most reasonable price.

But it’s the personal service you receive in the unfortunate event of a claim that really makes a broker stand out. You want to be able to sit across the table from a locally-based professional who can help you sort everything out and help you get through the trying times with as little stress as possible.

Remember, insurance is not just a piece of paper; it is a promise of service to be provided in the event of a claim. That's where Newman excels. That’s one of the reasons why, when people ask friends and family for references for insurance, people who know us tell them to “call Newman.”

With over 100 years in your community and our expertise, the choice for any of your insurance needs is clear.

Great team to work with. When we changed from a city focused insurer they were helpful in finding the right company for rural needs.

Expect only great service, great people and great advice! Newman is like no other brokerage I have seen. They mean to fill your needs. Not their pockets.


Over the years we have needed to file a couple of claims or just needed questions answered and I never have to talk to the insurance company. Rose does that for us. I would advise against insurance you can purchase online. You are on your own that way.


I would like to thank you for sponsoring our hockey team...Your support will open many new opportunities for these young women. Without the support of people like you, we will not be able to reach our goals.
