Corporate History

Insurance Brokers and Agents in Hamilton, Ontario

Founded in 1921 by Mr. William Percival Mitchell, Mitchell & Abbott Group Insurance Brokers has a long, deep-rooted history in the greater Hamilton, Ontario region. With more than 80 years combined experience and an understanding of the insurance industry second to none. We know this business – and we will use our knowledge to help you, our customer.

We are proud of many of our accomplishments over the years, including that we have had the opportunity to be the insurance broker for Canada’s favourite coffee chain for over 40 years. In addition, we are very proud to be able to say that we pioneered the concept of senior discounts on auto insurance for Ontario drivers. Case-in-point, we were the brokers who started the “Grey Power” Insurance phenomenon.

Through 4 generations and boom & bust times in the economy, the team at Mitchell & Abbott Group has always taken pride in not only providing quality insurance products, but in working in their community to support and provide for the betterment of all.

Perhaps our most significant contribution to the community has been our close to 30-year involvement with the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. To learn more about our community involvement and charitable initiative, please click here.

Of course, just like in any business, our most important asset is our staff. We employ over 30 licensed insurance professionals along with numerous support staff. To contact a team member, please click here to go to our staff directory.
