About HSB BI&I


For over 135 years, The Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company of Canada has been Canada’s premier equipment breakdown specialists, serving customers both directly through strong broker relationships and as a trusted reinsurance partner to over 50 P&C companies. For most of that rich history, our clients have benefited from our own leadership as well as the added experience and insight of our parent company, Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB). In 2011, in recognition of that long and supportive relationship, we joined the HSB and BI&I names together.

Today, HSB BI&I is a proud member of the Munich Re Risk Solutions family, continuing our tradition of excellence in technical knowledge and commitment to customers with coverage and service available in all provinces. We provide jurisdictional inspections in accordance with provincial code provinces along with policy-driven inspection services across Canada.

As part of Munich Re, HSB BI&I – itself carrying an A++ (Superior) rating from A.M. Best – has the backing of one of the world’s most experienced and stable insurance and reinsurance companies. With shared values and complementary skill sets and offerings, we have the ability to leverage a global knowledge base to develop and deliver innovative, forward-thinking risk solutions. We are showing our clients NOT IF, BUT HOW to manage risk in a complex and evolving world.

Thanks to a team of almost 200 engineers, inspectors and technical personnel across Canada, the HSB BI&I difference is grounded in our extensive technical understanding, developed over more than a century of partnership with HSB and enhanced by Munich Re. We have a well-deserved reputation for fair, prompt claims service, efficient underwriting, quick quote turnaround and being easy to work with. Our longstanding focus on excellence, dependability and collaboration has earned us a reputation for understanding the challenges facing our customers and delivering superior risk solutions and coverage that our clients can count on.
