CNA Canada Celebrates 100 Years in Business

TORONTO, November 7, 2017 — CNA Canada has kicked off its celebration of a significant milestone — 100 years as a successful and growing business.

On November 6, 1917, CNA opened its first Canadian office with fewer than ten underwriters. By 1923, CNA was writing business across the country. Today, in partnership with its valued brokers, CNA Canada provides a broad spectrum of standard and specialty property and casualty products and services to commercial enterprises in Canada and around the world.

"In Canada, we're committed to growing profits by providing market-leading products and services that meet the changing needs of commercial insurance customers, and we're extremely grateful that we've been able to achieve this ambition over the past century," said Nick Creatura, President and Chief Executive Officer, CNA Canada. "We look forward to commemorating CNA Canada's 100 years as we host a series of events and activities across the country to celebrate this momentous milestone, and, more importantly, to show our gratitude to our employees, our brokers, our insured customers, and to the communities we serve."

During a press conference on November 6, 2017, Creatura announced that CNA Canada has partnered with Tree Canada, the country's leading national tree planting charity, to fund the planting of thousands of trees across the country. For 25 years, Tree Canada has engaged communities, governments, corporations and individuals in the pursuit of a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians.

"Throughout the next year, CNA Canada will be giving back across our great country. In partnership with Tree Canada, we will work together and fund the planting of thousands of trees in areas where there is a need for reforestation or afforestation. This is a cornerstone of our commitment to contributing to a more sustainable future for our planet," Creatura added.
