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, who is the current owner, 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 five additional licenced insurance brokers and an administrative professional. Many of our staff have been with Underwriters for decades, and each of our current brokers has 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.
