Our History Underwriters Insurance, through the Cameron family, has served Powell River and the surrounding area for nearly 50 years. In 1972, after moving from Vancouver, Scotty and Grace Cameron chose to establish Underwriters Insurance and call Powell River’s amazing community “home.” They set up shop in a small office on Marine Avenue. Their son, Michael, joined Underwriters in 1982. In 1994, the office moved to its current Joyce Avenue location. Mike’s son, Scott, joined the office full-time in 2013. Mike and Scott manage the current staff, which includes six additional licenced insurance brokers and two administrative professionals. Most of our current brokers have at least 10 years of industry knowledge and experience to share with our clients. We strive to give our clients the very best insurance experience each day. Personal service is at the heart of our business. We recognize the importance of community, and we actively support many local groups and charities.
