JEVCO Insurance Company
Established in 1980, JEVCO Insurance Company is a Quebec-based, Canadian property and casualty (“P&C”) insurer that does business across Canada. JEVCO conducts business in Canada through a network of 2,200 independent brokers.

In March 2010, Westaim completed its opportunistic acquisition of JEVCO Insurance Company for ~$260 million. Over the following months, Westaim set out to execute its long-term strategic plan to grow JEVCO organically and through acquisitions.
In response to an unsolicited offer, in September 2012, Westaim sold JEVCO to Intact Financial Corporation for ~$530 million, and subsequently returned substantially all of the proceeds of the sale to its shareholders.
