September 12, 2022, Surrey, BC/Territories of the Coast Salish (Kwantlen, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen first nations) – Today, Westland Insurance announced that it has acquired two new Canadian brokerages effective September 1: Montridge Advisory Group and BST Insurance.

Montridge Advisory Group is one of Canada’s premier employee benefits advisors and is based out of Vancouver. With this acquisition, Westland increases the depth of its employee benefits platform.

BST Insurance Brokers Ltd. has been in operation for over four decades and is a full-service P&C brokerage based out of Pickering, Ontario. This is Westland’s first location in Pickering.
