Mission Statement

"We are committed to delivering excellence in customer service, while providing our clients with peace of mind through comprehensive and cost-effective insurance and risk management solutions."

Successful Start

Brokers Trust Insurance Group grew from humble beginnings in a small office-front on College Street in Toronto in 1963. Gino Ventresca and Bruno Bertolin, founders of the company, worked tirelessly trying to build their business one client at a time. Their goal - to provide peace-of-mind to local residents and businesses with good insurance coverage from fair and reputable and stable insurers. Based on their common values of integrity, trust, and loyalty, the two built the foundation for achieving their goal.

Over 45 Years of Growth

In 1972, the Ventresca-Bertolin Insurance Agency reached their first milestone. Due to their overwhelming success and resultant growth, more office space was needed; that year the company moved to a larger office at Eglington and Dufferin. That same year a new partnership was formed, seeing Fred Giansante, already a valuable employee of the firm, join Ventresca-Bertolin as a partner and Gino Ventresca leave to pursue other business interests. Fred’s vision, optimism and strong ambition for growth, paired with Bruno’s conservative and steady leadership, created a strong and successful partnership. This would be evidenced over the next 19 years that saw Bruno and Fred continuously reaching on their objective of steady growth, financial stability and excellence in customer service. Along the way, they built a reputable name for themselves among clients and within the insurance industry.

In 1990, Larry Scenna, an account executive with Ventresca-Bertolin, purchased Rex Insurance Brokers and joined Verntresca-Bertolin as a partner. With-in the same year, Harrison Chamak Insurance Brokers, joined the brokerage. The partners re-named their new office – Brokers Trust Insurance. With this new milestone, and considerably larger operation, Brokers Trust Insurance Inc. moved into a new office space located at Keele and Lawrence. The guiding principles that were established in 1963, enabled the new partnership to further expand its operations.

In 1999, Brokers Trust Insurance Inc. was joined by Norwood Insurance Group, and Brokers Trust Insurance Group Inc., as it is known today, was born. Once again, reaching a milestone, the company moved into a new and modern office at its current location in Vaughan.

This past decade has seen Brokers Trust continue to flourish with the addition of several brokers and brokerages, among them, Bill Dunn Insurance, Doug Rice Insurance, and Northtown Insurance.

In order to expand our service capabilities for our clients, Brokers Trust Life Insurance Agency Inc. has been established to look after their life insurance, health, group health and wealth management needs.
