About Us


clients since

At Keyes Insurance Brokerage, our rich history of serving our clients goes back to 1926 when the first Keyes Insurance was founded in Gananoque, Ontario by J.F. Keyes. Fast forward to 1980 when third-generation founder Terry Keyes started his brokerage here in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The current President and owner, Shaun Keyes, began working with his father in 1996 and purchased the company in 2019. Four generations, one philosophy: treat our customers like our family. Today the same values apply, and we are proud to be one of the few remaining independent insurance brokerages in Nova Scotia.


Unlike many other brokerages that are either owned or partially owned by the insurance companies they sell for, we are truly independent, with our customer’s interest first, not the insurance company.

We are the first choice for home and auto insurance in Nova Scotia. Contact us today and experience our service difference! And watch for the details of our recent expansion into insurance sales in New Brunswick.


Just take it from
our happy customers.
