Founder’s Story

In 2002, Russ Smart, the company’s founder, was referred to a lady who had her home foreclosed because the bank did not pay out on their mortgage insurance. Russ wanted to get the message out to as many people as possible and turned to the best information portal he could find, the Internet. As a result, he pioneered the sales of proper life insurance over the Internet. To accomplish this, he went on to establish a network of experienced insurance agents with over 150 years of combined experience. Our expert agents can answer just about any question that might arise, and know where to get the answer if they don’t. Today, IDC Insurance continues to be a leader in the marketplace. Our agents are licensed to sell life, health, travel and mortgage insurance products to individuals, families and businesses across Canada.

Over the past fifteen years we have sold well over $2 billion in life insurance coverage to over 12,000 clients. We know that it usually takes time to feel comfortable working with someone you have not met. We pride ourselves in taking the time to get to know you, your individual situation, and your family so that we can help you decide on what amount and type of insurance is best for you and your budget.

Over the years we have established unique and lasting relationships with all the companies who support our pioneering non face-to-face (meaning no agents will visit) business model. These companies recognize our dedication to quality of service and have offered us special consideration due to our outstanding history of service with no client complaints. Our team of well trained and trusted insurance professionals will save you time and money. We are only a phone call or email away from helping you make important decisions about your insurance needs or changes to your policy, and of-course we will be there to assist you at claim time.
