Several major players in the insurance and financial services industries have settled here because they recognize the stability of our city.

These companies enhance our quality of life, playing a key role in our economy and as respected community partners.

Historically, finance has played an important role in our local community. Today, Insurance giants like Manulife Financial, Sun Life Financial, Equitable Life of Canada and Economical Insurance also have offices in Waterloo. Together, they employ about 7,500 people in our community and have contributed to our moniker, the “Hartford of the North.” 

Not only do these insurance companies serve our residents and businesses, they have developed strong partnerships with various committees and organizations to enhance our quality of life. For example, Manulife Financial sponsors the LPGA Classic held at our very own Grey Silo Golf Course and Sun Life Financial has sponsored the Waterloo Busker Carnival for the past 25 years.

Waterloo is also home to many banks, investment firms and insurance brokers that support our strong financial sector. In particular, uptown Waterloo is currently the location of choice for BMO Bank of Montreal, HSBC Bank Canada, CIBC, Royal Bank and TD Canada Trust, just to name a few.
