About Us

Blair Insurance Brokers was established in 1978 and has been proudly serving our clients for over 40 years. Our founder, Doug Blair, based the company on the simple principle of providing the best possible customer service to every client.

His approach ensured knowledgeable advice, honesty, integrity, and an unfailing willingness to advocate on our client’s behalf. In addition, we also believe in educating clients to enable them to make informed decisions when selecting protection for their future insurance needs.


Our business operates from the historic building on Main St. Markham.

With daughter Andrea Blair at the helm for the past 30 years, these core values still permeate every aspect of Blair Insurance. It’s how we do business. The tradition of excellence in service and delivering reliable advice to our clients continues.

This approach saves you time and money while providing optimal insurance solutions. We want to ensure that you get the most value for your insurance dollar.

Long-Standing Partnerships with Trusted Providers

Blair Insurance Brokers is an independently owned brokerage. Because of this, we are able to offer impartial advice. This way, we can offer our clients impartial and unbiased advice.  We help clients identify and prioritize what they need, and which coverage will best suit these needs.

We’ve made it our mandate to know the marketplace, and we only represent quality insurers with reputable products and proven track records.  We’ve partnered with many of our insurers for decades and have access to the most beneficial insurance products available.  We have won their confidence and they have won ours. This means a lot when we have to champion our clients and advocate for their needs.

Skilled Brokers Dedicated to Finding the Best Policies for Your Needs

We understand that insurance is a major part of a client’s financial protection plan.  At Blair Insurance we have assembled a team of exceptionally skilled insurance professionals who are dedicated to their careers and who take the time to understand you and your business. Our salaried staff provide well informed, honest, straightforward information tailored to each client’s needs. As the saying goes, ‘knowledge is power’, and we strive to empower our clients. It’s all to one end – to deliver every advantage and opportunity to build and service your insurance protection plan.

When you sign on with us, you will be assigned a dedicated account manager to oversee your insurance needs. You will get to know that person and grow comfortable communicating with them in the event you need to access and update these needs in the future.

As an example of this important two-way communication, if your rates go up, and they sometimes do, we’ll call to review your policies. If a change is desired, we’ll shop all the top carriers to find similarly priced options to maintain your coverage.
