History of Donovan Insurance Brokers Inc.

Founded in the Spring of 1969, and celebrating our 46th Anniversary in 2015, Donovan Insurance Brokers Inc. is a leading insurance brokerage in the Greater-Kitchener-Waterloo Region.

Kevin J. Donovan, joined the brokerage in 1978 and began acquiring the ownership in the late 1980's. In 1989, due to continued growth and the need for additional space and staff, the company moved to the current location, 72 Regina Street North in Waterloo.

We are proud to be a part of the local community and support many charity and community events and organizations. Find out more about our community involvement.
